The latest Roy Morgan poll is yet another rogue result, claiming that new National Party leader Judith Collins has actually cost the Tories votes. That can’t be true, surely?
On the day that National have released their party list, this will be a reminder to Tory MP’s ranked in the mid 30’s that they shouldn’t get their hopes up.
Labour? Well, they just keep rollin’ on.
ACT continue to be the gutter into which blue votes drain, lifting to a remarkable 6.5%. That would give them at least 8 MPs by my calculation.
The Greens are comfortably safe, so clearly there’s no need to campaign hard in the Auckland Central electorate. The energy really should be focussed on lifting the party vote and bringing in MP’s ranked in the teens on the list, not subsidising what is essentially now a Queen Street vanity project.
Anybody remember NZ First? Me neither.
My quick shufti at potential seat outcomes suggests Labour will have 68 seats and the Greens 10, versus ACT 8 and National 34.
That’s a dead set shellacking.
Perhaps National should change leader?
