Some pundits are waxing lyrical about how the Nats have maintained their vote over 4 elections, but that masks the underlying trend of the tide going out on the political right.
Centre right (Nat+Act+UF+Cons)
2017: 46.86%, will come down further with specials.

I know it's complicated but
1996: Bolger was PM 33% of the vote.
2014: the right got 52.18%
2017: the right got 46.7% & will go down too

Working with the National party is the political kiss of death. United Future – gone. Maori Party – gone. Pretend ACT party – dumped. Conservatives – never even got the chance to work with National, but they’re gone too.
