Sadly, not. Who’d have predicted the fight losing two rounds?
dbuckley – Sonny Bill Williams has a glass jaw, and you have crystal balls!
Can you predict his future?
I suspect that on current form he will have divided the country sufficiently to be removed long before that. There is of course, a substantial dupe count here in NZ (people National is able to dupe into voting against their own best interest). How long that prevails is a matter of no small importance. Our job is to remove wool from eyes… the press may or may not help… and to keep our policies honest and well reasoned.
Unlike dbuckley, I just can’t see into the future and predict with absolute surety as he can, the results of an election! What’s wrong with me???
It’s all about the crystal balls 🙂
I believe that JK will get rolled in 2020. I really, really hope I’m wrong, and it happens before then.
Whatever replaces the JK administration better be worth the wait.
And working out permeatations of who would be in govt, based on a poll nearly two years before an election, is a complete waste of time.
– online polls can be made to “shave” votes eg only every third vote counts for one party, while every vote counts for another
– online polls can be tricked to accept votes from the same person (use of flash cookie removal, history clearing, or the use of proxies).
– could also be the demographic that views that particular site favours the left, and especially favours the Green party. This makes sense as supporters IMHO are better informed about issues and therefore much more likely to read about politics on Sunday.
Should be CANNOT find the 27% being dreamed about. Maybe I need new glasses?
What should be of more interest to the Labour/Greens is
.The poll’s “government confidence rating” was down 2 points to 124.5 with 55 per cent saying the country was “heading in the right direction”, and 30.5 per cent (unchanged) saying it was heading in the wrong direction.
Are the messages for alternative Labour/Greens polices being judged on their merit? Is the populace “buying” the policies?
Would seem not as there is a clear divergence of opinion on the direction that the voters want to see the country drive forward versus those wanting a 180 degree turnaround.
Labour/Green policies not hitting their voting block marks?
Someone needs new glasses.
I read “Greens steady at 13.5%”.
Can find the 27% being dreamed about by.
The latest Roy Morgan poll had Labour up three points on 34.5 per cent while the Greens were steady on 13.5 per cent.
The political left, especially, needs to look closely at what Hugh has to say. He has been through the bowels of property development and seen all its dramas (and bullshit) throughout his decades-long career. He is a true expert on this issue.
