No matter what Umno thinks of itself, the signs are there that it, like its rejected junior partners, will soon lose its position in Malaysian politics.
56 years in the seat of power, Umno has lost touch with the reality on the ground.
It still sees itself as indispensable - the protector of the Malays, Islam and the Institution of Monarchy.
But a growing number of Malays are beginning to see that Umno is more concerned for itself than anything else; it only uses the age old battle cry of Bangsa, Agama Dan Raja-Raja (Race, Religion And The Monarchy) as a convenient means to hoodwink the Malays.
They can see that while the ordinary Malays have to struggle with the daily costs of living, Umno elites and their cronies drive or are chauffeured around in luxury.
They, like everyone else, no longer feel safe in their own country.
Despite the authorities' denial, they can see that crime is on the rise and they feel insulted that the authorities constantly remind them that crime rise is only a perception, not a fact.
They can see that the country's economy is hurtling along to bankruptcy, what with the sovereign debt at an all time high of 540 billion ringgit and still growing.
They can see that the country's businesses are farmed out to a few cronies, families and friends with little or no accountability.
That we are becoming overly dependent on oil, a depleting resource.
That the leaders have no real idea on how to steer the nation's economy on an even, healthy keel.
They see that Umno elites in the government have become merely "yes" men, all out not so much to serve the rakyat as to serve their own interests.
Each one trying to outbid the other to prove their loyalty and fealty to their masters.
And some of them seem to have even lost their minds; one apostle daring Malaysians who are not happy with the results of GE13 to emigrate.
A Pm that talks only to promote himself - A,B,C, the complete alphabet soup.
Umno now only seem relevant to themselves.
To a growing number of perceptive Malays, Umno is on the way out.
How else can you explain that more Malays this GE13 had voted for the opposition than for Umno, whether the latter wants to acknowledge it or not?
A quote from prominent blogger Sakmongkol
"Just look at the above figures. In Peninsula Malaysia, BN got 4.347million votes compared to 5.624million votes garnered by PR. That’s 45% compared to 53%. It is obvious PR won the popular votes. In simpler words to UMNO people, more people voted PR than UMNO/BN.
9.4 million Malaysian citizens voted in Peninsula on that day. From that figure, let us assume that 70% were Malays. The number of Malay voters in Peninsula was 6.58 million on that Sunday. BN got 4.347 million votes. Assuming out of that, 70% were Malay voters, UMNO candidates secured 3.0 million votes, an increase of 1 million from 2008. That is logical given the amount of money Najib bribed to get their votes. If UMNO got 3.0 million Malay votes, the number of Malays who didn’t vote UMNO was bigger- at 3.58 million! "
