Review of iPredict Election 2011 by Bryce Edwards
TONIGHT @ 7PM: Winston Peters & Selwyn Manning
Last nights show with Hone Harawira & Matthew Hooton
Prediction 1: With iPredict saying Hone Harawira is as safe in the Te Tai Tokerau electorate as John Key is in Helensville, the focus turns on MANA possibly winning a second set in Waiariki. The Maori Party have a 58% probability of winning, MANA now have a 39% probability of winning - what is the best buy or short?
Prediction 2: The iPredict market is predicting a MANA Party vote at 2%. With beneficiaries making up 12% of the national electorate, is this a buy or a short, will MANA become the new political voice of the poor after Labour's latest abysmal poll results.
Prediction 3: Despite Kelvin Davis’ controversial endorsement of him for the leadership, iPredict says the chances of Shane Jones being the next leader of the Labour Party are .... just 5%. Is this the swan song for Shane Jones political career or can the self described greatest orator of the 21st century beat Pita Sharples?
