THIS FROM LABOUR'S PREFERRED POLLSTER

Our 'friends' from across the political divide have always claimed the Roy Morgan Poll as the 'one true poll' and, as it was conducted over the period that took in the Labour Party Conference with their increased media exposure, one could reasonably expect a spike in their numbers.

The reality is somewhat different.   Support for the Government and it's coalition partners was up 0.5% to 51.5% (with support for United Future remaining at 0%) while Labour (+0.5%) and the Greens (+0.5%) climb 1% to 41%.    Winston First drops 0.5% to 6% while support for both the Conservatives and Mana Parties remain at 0.5% each.     All this is 'moe' stuff.

What isn't moe and perhaps the real headline from the poll is that the Government Confidence Rating has jumped 9.5 points to 131.5 and mirrors the increase in the ANZ Consumer Confidence Rating Survey which increased 7.8 points to 122.7.

What Labour needs to do is to take a leaf out of Colin Craig's book and run their own poll.   Then they could manipulate the result to say what they wanted it to say.

What supporting evidence to you have for this claim? Anything? At all?

The right support having New Zealanders exposed to Australian rapists and child molesters.

Howie, you are cementing your image as a 'dick.'

Go and do a google search, you fool.

Just show me the evidence for the statement:

"Our 'friends' from across the political divide have always claimed the Roy Morgan Poll as the 'one true poll' "

Should be simple. Especially the direct quote 'one true poll'. Thanks!

Howie ... multiple times by posters in the Standard over the last seven years and especially when Roy Morgan showed a different outcome from the TV1 poll. Do your own research.

No comment on the substance of the post I note ... telling.

and ... I know you work hard on making yourself appear a fool but your statement that the 'right' supports having New Zealanders exposed to Australian rapists and child molesters really takes the biscuit. Since when has Australia started deporting Australians to New Zealand? Can't be done son. Or, are you arguing that the New Zealanders being deported from Australia under s501 arn't real New Zealanders ... kinda cuts the ground from under the feet of Labour and Greens here doesn't it.

Actually, you've made my day. Thank you. LOL.

"Howie ... multiple times by posters in the Standard over the last seven years and especially when Roy Morgan showed a different outcome from the TV1 poll. Do your own research."

Go on then, just show me one where anyone credible has claimed, as you suggest "they" always have, that RM is the "one true poll". You must have it at your finger-tips as you were apparently quoting someone directly. Don't tell me you're making shit up?

"I know you work hard on making yourself appear a fool but your statement that the 'right' supports having New Zealanders exposed to Australian rapists and child molesters really takes the biscuit."

Just doing what you do, pal. In any event someone who has lived their entire life in Australia but who simply never got round to formally getting citizenship is essentially Australian. The Aussies are exploiting a loophole to take out their trash and leave it on our door-step, and the right likes that apparently.

Howie ... in the spirit of 'friendship' I'll help you then. Go to the Standard archives and troll thru until you get to a comment from, ndp begins with R and a second, ndp begins with C. Happy!!!! Go2it.

And, as I said, a very big TY for cutting the ground from under the feet of your mob. Egbut will be pleased ... not.

Howie said...

Um, you point to a single comment on the Standard which doesn't contain the quote you cited and call that proof that "Our 'friends' from across the political divide have always claimed the Roy Morgan Poll as the 'one true poll'". Why don't you just admit made it up and you can move on.

And whatevs. By the standard of proof you live by I can say anything and it's good enough. The right side of politics is by their own admission populated entirely by people who think the pyramids were built by Joseph to store grain. They've always said that.

Howie ... you are really a f*****t pure and simple but again, TY for helping to undermine the 'lefts' preferred position on the deportees.

Care to authenticate your statement re right and pyramids and grain ... Nah, don't bother, there are far more serious issues happening in Paris right now.
