Doomsday This Saturday (2)

It might be for Winston Peters if the people at Colmar Brunton are right.

It comes after an intense week of campaigning which saw Jacinda Ardern make a U-turn on tax.

His party vote has plunged to just five percent and he won't hold Northland so there's every chance of a Winstonless gummint come Sunday.

I can't remember when the polls were so 'all over the place' but of course this one is CB not Reid Research and CB has consistently had Labour ahead.  Today they are a whopping nine points behind.

I haven't pushed this poll through the election thingy but it these results are borne out, then National and ACT may well have enough to scrape in on their own.  The Maori Party would be almost a cert to join in to keep Winston away from their precious Maori seats if he did make it.

This is why elections are such marvellous sport.

Colmar Brunton rounded up the figures. Winston First is at 4.9%. The downward trend continues.

Glad to see The Greens are now well and truly over the threshold. Who knows, they may have more influence in the Beehive than the polls have shown recently. Hope so.

I am consumed by a pleasant warm inner glow. I think I'll go and enjoy a cigar and a generous cognac.

I do feel for the simple people who who become sexually aroused by polls, not to be confused with people who dance around poles.
