A preview interview for iPredict Election 2011 with Chris Philpott, TV reviewer at Stuff.co.nz
TONIGHT @ 7pm: Matthew Hooton and Jacinda Ardern:
Last nights predictions with Chris Trotter and Phoebe Fletcher
Prediction 1 - iPredict is saying there is a 10% chance of Phil Goff becoming Prime Minister, while that sounds terribly low, that is the highest he has been since July, and market sentiment changed most after the Opening Addresses on Friday
Prediction 2 - iPredict is saying the National Party vote will be 46%, the latest mainstream media landline polls are claiming 53.3% can National really govern alone?
Prediction 3 - iPredict is predicting 1.65% growth to the end of March 2012, while Treasury has predicted 2.3% growth. What are the political ramifications of much less growth than Bill English is banking on?
