A Mumble News poll published last night [confirms/refutes] the trend seen in recent weeks [in favour of/against] David Shearer.
This is a [great result/terrible result] for the [embattled/inspirational/total failure of a] leader, who has [faced criticism/received praise] [in the press/on the blogs] over his [decision/lack of decisive action] [in support of/opposing] [controversial/mainstream] policies.
[It clearly reflects the impact of !event / It is obvious that !event has had no impact] on people’s perceptions.
Previous polls have shown he has [gained traction/failed to gain any traction] against [the Prime Minister/the Greens/Winston Peters], and is [set to lead Labour/incapable of leading Labour] to an [historic/marginal/Pyrrhic] [victory/defeat] in 2014, in coalition with the [Greens/Mana/NZ First/ALCP].
This result just confirms everything I’ve been saying. David Shearer is the [best man/worst man] to lead the Labour Party. The public of New Zealand [are behind him/despise him/don't know who he is] and he’s [putting forward great Labour policies which are capturing people's imaginations / stumbling drunkenly from failure to failure].
Everyone who’s said that the polls show otherwise should apologise right now. Their opinions just aren’t supported by the numbers. It’s now clear that David Shearer [has momentum/is dead in the water], and everyone must unite behind [him/David Cunliffe/Shane Jones/Hone Harawira].
