Ipredict Election 2011, 7pm tonight, Stratos Freeview 21 & Sky 89
A preview interview for iPredict Election 2011 with Chris Philpott, TV reviewer at Stuff.co.nz
TONIGHT @ 7PM: Matthew Hooton and Gareth Hughes
Last nights predictions with Matthew Hooton and Jacinda Ardern:
Prediction 1 - iPredict saw John Key swing up to a 92% chance of becoming Prime Minister directly after last nights debate, and then trend back down to 90% today. Are National supporters getting over-enthusiastic about their man, or a rational analysis of what happened last night?
Prediction 2 - iPredict is saying that Jacinda Ardern only has a 26% chance of winning Auckland Central -– is National’s Nikki Kaye too strong, or has the market underestimated one of Labour's rising stars?
Prediction 3 - iPredict is predicting Hone Harawira only has an 80% chance of winning Te Tai Tokerau - is this the best buy or will Kelvin ruin MANA's day?
