The Auckland Tabloid has taken to publishing anti-National Party propaganda derived from the ever unreliable Horizon Poll which is taken from a bank of online individuals rather than random samples of voters by phone. Today's shock horror headline was all about the voters turning against National. (I see that piece has been taken down from the Herald website since TVNZ published its poll tonight. Now I see that's because it actually was and is on the SST website. Thanks B Hudson.)
From memory it had National down substantially with Labour up and 40% of National voters unhappy with John Key's handling of the Panzy Wong business.
Nobody seems to have told the people who were polled at the same time by Colmar Brunton.
Watch The Herald's circulation take another dive over coming months as it follows assiduously the tried and true strategies of the egregiously partisan New York Times.
As an aside, from this poll it looks as though voters have made up their minds who killed the twenty nine miners. The Greens have shed more than a third of their vote and are out on their shabby arses.
