Review of iPredict Election 2011 by Bryce Edwards
TONIGHT @ 7PM: Political values with Leader of the NZ Conservative Party, Colin Craig & MANA welfare spokesperson, Sue Bradford
Last nights show with David Parker & Matthew Hooton
Prediction 1: Despite showing us the money and highlighting Government deceptions over Labour's costings, the market still shows the Labour party vote flatlining at 30%. In the soundbite age, despite providing the substance, is style really enough to impress NZ voters?
Prediction 2: After heavy trading across the weekend, the probability of Paul Goldsmith to win Epsom rose to 40%. With Don Brash begging John Key to tell the good people of Epsom to vote for John Banks on Breakfast last week and landline polling suggesting Banks is a distant second - will the good people of Epsom do what they are told by head office?
Prediction 3: The market is predicting that National have an 80% probability of winning in New Plymouth - has the market got it wrong and is this the best short on iPredict with a strong candidate in Andrew Little?
