Shock poll: gap closes dramatically
National has shed seven percentage points in a shock poll which puts Labour trailing by just 3 per cent. The latest New Zealand Morgan Poll released today puts National's support at 40.5 per cent with Labour climbing 1 point to 37.5 per cent, from the last Morgan poll just over a fortnight ago. Today's poll puts the Greens on 9 per cent support, up 2.5 per cent, New Zealand First down one on 4 per cent, ACT up 2 to 3.5 per cent, the Maori Party and United Future up 0.5 per cent to 2 per cent and 1 per cent respectively.
PLUS this new Poll out from TV3 tonight...
SEACHANGE - say it with me folks - S-E-A-C-H-A-N-G-E - as we have been pointing out on Tumeke for some time this election will be closer than many Polls have been reckoning and Key’s TranzRail shares had a much larger impact on those Labour voters who had flirted with supporting National and they’ve gone either third party or have gone home to Helen. With the corporate meltdown who will NZers turn to? In America the champions of capitalism who have always attacked Government intervention ran screaming to the Government as soon as their toy popped. In NZ will NZers turn to the Party that is all about Government intervention or will they turn to the Party that makes love to the free market, the very same free market that has been so molested by corporate greed that it's exploded? I think National will get more votes on the night, but it will be up to Labour, the Greens and the Maori Party to prove they can put aside the bullshit and talk turkey, now because the Greens and the Maori Party HAVE NOT been talking about putting a legislative list to Labour to form a Government, the possibility of a Maori Party/National Party coalition can not be ruled out and is still a strong possibility, the only threat to that possible partnership are the National Party supporters themselves.
