The swing to the ….oops

The latest Roy Morgan poll is more bad news for Labour and the left. It shows National back on 52.5% (up 3%) and has Labour drop to 33% (down 3.5%).

This brings the Morgan Poll, which the left cling to as often the “only accurate poll”, more in line with the 3News poll and the TVNZ poll which the left rubbished.

So much for the “Swing to the left” that they were crowing about at the Labour Party conference. Who would have thought that a “swing to the left” would be so good for the right?

The latest New Zealand Roy Morgan Poll shows support for John Key’s National-led Government has gained strongly to 55% (up 2.5%), comprising National Party 52.5% (up 3%), Maori Party 1.5% (down 1%), ACT NZ 0.5% (unchanged) and United Future 0.5% (up 0.5%).

Support for Opposition Parties has fallen to 45% (down 2.5%); Labour Party 33% (down 3.5%), Greens 8.5% (up 0.5%), New Zealand First 2.5% (unchanged), Progressive Party 0% (unchanged) and Others 1% (up 0.5%).

If a National Election were held today the National Party would be returned to Government.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
