“National can govern alone in the latest 3 News poll at 49 percent. It has shed two points, from what was an artificial high.But Labour drops to 35 percent, the lowest it has been since the last election.The Greens are back to 7 percent and crucially over the 5 percent threshold to get back to Parliament.NZ First is on 3 percent, it needs leader Winston Peters to win Tauranga, or it faces oblivion.The Maori Party is at 3 percent while Act and United Future barely register.”
With the House returning next week the task for Labour MPs is to show that they have the passion and hunger for the job that Helen Clark portrays.
“Miss Clark said her message to the caucus was that Labour would have the most compelling vision for the future, the best solutions and the best policy.”
The public are demanding that they deliver.
