After delivering a shock poll that had National just 6.5% ahead of Liarbour, Roy Morgan has just delivered another shocker.
The latest poll has New Zealand first DOUBLING its support to 5%, which would be enough to see the return of Winston Peters, regardless of what happens in Tauranga, or whether Liarbour strikes a deal to safeguard his deputy Ron Mark.
National is up 3% to 47.5%, with Liarbour down 1.5% to 36.5%, so the LEAD FOR NATIONAL has stretched out from 6.5% to 11%. ACT remains on 1.5%
I can only hope this is yet another rogue poll from the Australians.
If it is true, what does it say about New Zealand and its acceptance of corruption.
Have we become so used to it under Helengrad that not only do we turn a blind eye to it, but also fail to reward the one who helps uncover it, Rodney Hide. What has become of us?
I can only hope for more sensible findings from other polls expected soon, like the NZ Herald,TV3 and Fairfax/Nielsen.
