Aged and bewildered still support Winston

The Herald is drip feeding some Digipoll results. Yesterday was the result concerning NZ First.

Winston is more popular than Phil Goff with the greedy oldies. Not really surprising though, even stale cat vomit is more popular than Phil Goff.

There was also a significant increase in personal support for Winston Peters in the latest poll, whose stakes as preferred Prime Minister rose from 2.9 per cent to 5.2 per cent.

He outdid Labour leader Phil Goff among older voters – 14 per cent of those aged over 65 years named Mr Peters as their preferred Prime Minister compared to 13.2 per cent for Mr Goff.

Winston’s demographic is still the aged, the inform, the doolally and the bewildered.

Although Mr Peters said at his conference that the party intended to use social media to attract a more youthful voting base, he has some way to go.

His core support remained among the elderly – 7.6 per cent of those aged over 65 years selected NZ First – but just 1.3 per cent of those aged 18 to 39 and 0.9 per cent of 40-64 year olds chose his party.

All those results show is there is a reasonably large part of the electorate that have memory issues.
