Testing Dr Mahathir's prediction
that Barisan Nasional may lose the next general election (GE14).
GE14 is to be held less than three years from now.
The poll (on the top right corner of this web page) closed just now.
A total of 518 people took part over the seven-day period of the poll. Thanks to all of them.
The question was:
If the status quo of BN and Pakatan remains till GE14, how will you cast your vote?
The outcome was,
- 103 (about 19 per cent) will vote for BN
- 133 (about 25 per cent) will vote for Pakatan
- 282 (about 54 per cent) will refrain from voting
Bear in mind that this is a pro-establishment blog.
Well, some had even not too long ago labelled this blog as being pro-Najib.
Therefore I would like to believe that there are many more pro-establishment readers here than those who support the opposition.
The most significant aspect of the outcome was of course the huge percentage of those who will refrain from casting their vote if the status quo remains.
It's not a good sign for BN.
Pakatan even got more thumbs up than BN in the poll.
I don't think there were that many occasions when Pakatan beats BN in a poll set up by a pro-establishment blog.
Yes, based on the outcome of the little poll, Dr Mahathir's prediction that BN may lose GE14 may comes true if things continue as they were now.
BN, in particular Umno may have no problem to maintain the status quo, but they should also know that the ordinary rakyat are watching.
I don't think PM DS Najib Razak doesn't see the danger heading towards him and the rest of Umno.
I'm hoping that he already has a really good plan on how to deal with these sorts of crisis. The last time I checked, the plan (if you can call it such) was not so good.
And all those opportunists jostling for positions think they can continue to piggyback ride Najib forever by selling themselves as kunun nya berjuang untuk agama, bangsa dan tanahair.
