Excerpt from his latest post, Ungrateful Government, Greedy Oligarchs:
'Let’s get to the linchpin of UMNO support- the Malays. How many Malay votes did UMNO get? UMNO candidates got 3.2 million votes. Now- from that, how many were Malay votes?
While UMNO candidate were all Malays/Bumiputeras, its voters are not 100% Malays. Indians and Chinese still voted for UMNO candidates in multi-ethnic constituencies. Assume that 90% of the 3.2 million voters were Malays, this will mean that UMNO candidates got 2.88 million votes.
This time around, what was the number of Malay voters? Of the 11.22 million, 75% were Malays voters. Malays made up 8.42 million voters. How many did UMNO get? UMNO got 2.88 million Malay votes. How many Malays rejected UMNO? 5.54million.'
