Nearly all the media are calling Clark's grand strategy for what it is. Abject failure.
This morning's Fairfax-Neilsen poll has National at 54 and Labour at 35 with the best news left for last - Winston First at 2%. It confirms the folly of Labour's 'secret agenda' scare attack.
John Armstrong (who some foolishly label as a leftie) spells it out for her and Duncan Garner previews her plans for revival - a vacant parking lot.
Helen Clark has misunderestimated the intelligence and morality of the electorate.
It is clear to them that Labour master minded the taping of National's MPs. That's the perception and nothing Cullen or Clark or Williams or Mallard can say will change it. Voters don't like blatantly dishonest dirty tricks but that's all Labour has left in the tank. So much for her personal strategic prowess.
The polls are only going to get worse as the SFO closes in on Winston's slease ridden activities and more and more people are waking up to the fact that Clark, Williams and Labour are all involved in it up to their necks. They chose to get into bed with Winston and now that he's crapped in the bed, they are unable to change the sheets.
I agree with Whaleoil. There will be an early election.
