Double trouble for Dear Leader and Liarbour in two polls tonight.
As predicted the budget went down like a lead ballooon.
The taxcuts Liarbour delivered were too little too late.
Cullen has once more delivered a vote-winning budget- for National!!
TV1 has Liarbour down six and dropping below 30% at 29%.
National remains well in front at 55%- 26% in front!!!
The Greens are on 7% and NZ First a gainer on 4.4%.
The poll says National will have 70 seats, Liarbour 38, the Greens 8, Maori 4 and ACT2. Its goodbye NZ First despite growing support.
Key is well ahead as preferred PM on 36% , Clark on 28% and Winnie on 6%.
TV3 , meanwhile, has National on 50% and Liarbour on 35%, still 15% ahead and a vast improvement on their rogue poll of April which had Liarbour just 10% behind.
Key is preferred PM at 35% to 29%.
With TV1 reflecting the Fairfax Poll and TV3 reflecting the Herald Poll, and the budget making matters worse, the polls spell double trouble for Dear Leader.
Taking them all together Liarbour must be 20% or more behind and heading for one almighty kicking.
Dear Leader has no authority to govern on this poll.
But for her own interest she will hang on as long as possible.
But are they knives I hear being sharpened in the background.
What are Cunliffe and Goff doing tonight?
