Review of iPredict Election 2011 by Bryce Edwards
Last nights show with Matt McCarten and Neil Miller
Prediction 1: The iPredict market suggests the Epsom Tea Party Tapes have dented the National Party with the odds of John Key being Prime Minister plummeting for the first time from a 94% probability to an 85%, the largest slump since the election started, has the strategy of attacking the media back fired?
Prediction 2: In massive trading today, NZ First soars over 6% party vote and settles over 5%' can Winston really re-enter Parliament and what are the ramifications?
Prediction 3: At a 55% probability, Damien O'Connor is tipped to win back West-Coast Tasman, but how much trouble are Labour in the provinces?
Thursdays show with David Shearer and Matthew Hooton
Prediction 1: The iPredict market shows the last 24 hours has forced the National Party vote down to 45%. The Epsom Tea Party Tapes have damaged John Key, National are in crises, how do they pull out of this dive 9 days out from the election?
Prediction 2: A Fair-fax media poll out today suggests the Epsom Tea Party tapes have failed to throw the lifeline ACT need to return to Parliament with John Banks a distant second behind Paul Goldsmith. At a 45% probability of happening, is the National Party candidate winning Epsom this weeks best buy?
Prediction 3: The Minor Party Leaders debate screened on TVNZ last night and the market predict Greens at 11.5%, NZ First at 4.7%, ACT at 2.5%, Mana at 1.9%, Maori Party at 1.3% and United Future at 1%, have the market read this crucial area well?
