The pundits all reckon Shearer is rooted, but what do the numbers say? What would Nate Silver reckon?
The math looks like Shearer will be PM after the next election because National donâ€™t have any coalition partners.
The pundits should explain what part of the math they donâ€™t understand, or if they are just auditioning for a spot on Fox News – New Zealand edition.
I feel sorry for David Shearer, other more greedy members of his caucus want what is inevitable unless National can find partners or some other sort of electoral catastrophe doesn’t befall other parties.
David Shearer is a good guy being white-anted by his own team.
