Looks Pretty Comfortable To Me

66 seats for NACTional looks pretty good to me, even if TVNZ gives Clark 90% of the air time and tries to beat up a storm about Labour being able to govern with just a little help from its friends. My God, Clark looked old, haggard and desperate.

By far the most pathetically partisan commentary I've seen for a long time. Espiner will be sweeping the streets, come December.

The real news is that John Key has again gazzumped slow boy Cullen on interbank guarantees. TVNZ desperately tried to portray this as 'helping out big business' but they are pissing in the wind.

Clark has the sheer effrontery to attempt to paint John Key as inexperienced when all she has to offer is her Fiscal Fool whose only 'experience' is squandering surpluses.

Where did you find the full result Adolf?
Or are your fingers faster than mine?

I think next week's poll might see a swing back to National.
If memory serves me right, the Colmar Brunton poll takes place during the Sunday to Thursday of the previous week.
Thus it won't take into account Dear Leader's tanty over John Boy haing a better tv1 debate than she had.

The crazy thing for me is that TVNZ do not account for the fact the Maori party are tipped (and indeed polling) to win at least 6 of the Maori seats.

I think if Helen has a tanty next debate - John should just give her a good smack.

Herald reports the gap is closing:
http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=10538328

This poll is just margin of error results on the last poll.

Margin is about +- 3% so National lie between 47 - 53% and Labour lie between 33 and 39%. Any poll with the gap between 8 and 20 points is still only within margin of error.

They didn't show preferred PM. I wonder why?

Attack the Greens!
Great leverage by dropping their support by just 1-2%!
Their and Labour's record is wide open to criticism. Add a positive strategy and it's all on.
Then the Nats are clearly home and hose ...
Damn.
Looks too easy.
Why not?

Yes, anonymous, after the Greens' incredibly dumb move to publicise their dopey population control policy, they're just begging for a good beating, I mean, a non-violent disciplining, in the polls. We can't afford to let them be a kingmaker in any governmment. We need fewer starry-eyed idealists and more hard-nosed realists in government right now. Tough decisions are necessary now to ensure we move forward, not backwards, as a nation. Lean times are ahead, but they needn't be lean and mean. Out with ETS! Reform the RMA! Cut taxes and red tape! Vote ACT!

No, no, a good beating!

Frankly we can't afford to have them in parliament.

Lean times are ahead, but they needn't be lean and mean.

Sorry - the absolutely need to be both "mean" and lean.

If eliminating all benefits, firing half the "servants" and chopping the salaries of the other half by 50%, selling of health and education and dumping TVNZ, RNZ etc are considered "mean" of course --- rather than simply good sense!

Reform the RMA? What for? It's fascist.

Dump it & get bureaucracy out of the bloody way altogether.

Certainl we need a concerted effort to attack the Greens.
Take their crazy immigration and population polices for starters.
Yes, let's vote for the children by giving them a prosperous not a primitive future.

When is Granny polling again?
And will Roy morgan return to reality?
