No major shocks but it is interesting that there has been very little movement there has been since last election.  And the top positions clearly reflect current caucus standings.

And National will struggle to get new people off the list.  They may lose a couple of electorate seats but this will still mean that they have 39 electorate MPs.  And I reckon they will struggle to get to 42% this year which will allow up to 11 list MPs.  On these figures Parmjeet Parmar’s, Joanne Hayes’, Chris Bishop’s, Nuk Korako’ s and Maureen Pugh’s parliamentary careers would be over.

There is no sense of of the sort of renewal that they had last time.  This list looks tired and staid, exactly like this Government.

And can someone tell Stacey [Kirk] of Stuff that reporters are meant to get content correct?

She said this in an article that appeared this morning:

When former leader John Key increased the party’s vote-share in 2014, as a third-term Government, it was a feat unheard of and one English almost certainly will not be able to repeat.

Memo to Stacey National gained 47.04% of the party vote in 2014 compared to 47.31% in 2011.

[Mea culpa re Stacey’s surname – MS]

  1. Policy Parrot 1

    Re: Stacey Jones

    – You would have thought that a political journo would know better huh? But there was that infamous one party majority that was achieved on the election night 2014 (subsequently came back to 60, and then 59 by March 2015) that may have made those with less analytical skills believe a higher percentage had been achieved (instead Nats actually benefited from over 5% total vote wastage)

  2. The Real Matthew 2

    I think Stacey is talking about the absolute vote rather than the percentage vote though agree it is a little unclear.

    In Poll of Polls National is running at 46-47% so less than 42% seems a little pessimistic. At current polling National is looking at 12-13 new MP’s which represents a reasonable re-generation.

    Would be interesting to compare regeneration with the other parties on a same vote basis based on the last election.

    • lprent 2.1

      Perhaps the same kind of “perspective” would be usefulnto apply to the poll of polls?

      At this point in 2014, from memory it had National at over 50% on their own. Some of the more screwed polls from the usual suspects had them getting 55 or 56%. In the end they got 47%.

      Basically polls are essentially useless for accurracy this far our except to indicate trend rather than results. All the polls are showing National being well below their 2014 or 2011 level.

      If you want to be a meme sprouting dickhead here, then at least learn to be an accurate one. Bad enough having the stupid spinning from political journalists. We really don’t need it from commenters as well.

    • Enough is Enough 3.1

      How does that compare with the way the polls were showing the left parties. From recollection they greatly undershotthe support that Labour got

  4. Gabby 4

    They’ll pop in a name for Clutha Southland after the election.

  5. Roy 5

    Look how high Woodhouse and Guy are! I mean seriously, haven’t they been there long enough, without any decent achievements? I think e.g. Maggie and Nikki are awful, but at least they’ve done something.

    Pretty sad bunch.

    Guys – I am so thrilled you are all making fun of National list. Great achievement. Meanwhile I am worried to death that our party is at 24% in the latest opinion poll. None of you seem to care about that and suggest any ideas or plans to improve the polling. I am talking to all my friends (all former Labour voters) about Labour’s policies and what they are planning to do and nobody seem to care. This is really bad situation guys.

    • One Anonymous Bloke 8.1

      “all former Labour voters”

      “our party”

      I’ve run out of bingo cards.

      PS: Don’t despair, “Labour Voter” (lol), have a read of Swordfish’s analysis above. the CB poll always underestimates the Left vote, and the Greens are up more than Labour are down.

      If you get off your backside and knock on a few doors who knows what you could achieve? Unless you’re too lazy, or disingenuous, or something.

      Take your sincere concern™ about ‘your’ bad situation and do something positive with it, like the Greens 😈

      • Labour_Voter 8.1.1

        “If you get off your backside and knock on a few doors who knows what you could achieve? Unless you’re too lazy, or disingenuous, or something.” – Go and take your medicines.

  9. patricia bremner 9

    I note that any time the Left get any traction, there is a poll.

    When the Right trend down they have an outlier. (Brings the average up you know.)

    Just as having one party drop 2/3 points each poll shows an suggested trend.

    I think some of this is deliberate misinformation.

    I note one in five asked won’t choose.

    So how accurate is this? Or is it a fox in our hen house?

    I donated in response!! Put my money where my mouth is!! Keep Left!!
