Has Goff admitted defeat?

In the Herald today they quote Phil Goff as saying:

“I’m confident Labour will do a lot better than those polls suggest,” he told Newstalk ZB.

“A few months before the 1996 election Helen Clark was on 1 per cent.”

Who won the 1996 election again?

Perhaps he is being aspirational and aiming for Clark’s 1%.

No matter, the Herald has used a nice picture of David Cunliffe in that article as well.
