One News and 3News polls

Two polls tonight, similar results.

One News Colmar Brunton Poll:

  • National 50.0% (-3.0%)
  • Labour 28.0% (+2.0%)
  • Green 10.0% (-3.0%)
  • ACT 1.7% (+0.1%)
  • Maori 2.0% (+0.4%)
  • United Future 0.1% (-0.2%)
  • Mana 1.0% (-0.3%)
  • NZ First 4.2% (+2.0%)
  • Conservative 2.4% (+1.0%)

3News Reid Research Poll:

  • National 50.8% (+0.8)
  • Labour 26.0% (-1.4%)
  • Green 13.4% (+0.4%)
  • ACT 1.0%
  • Maori 1.5%
  • United Future 0.0%
  • Mana 1.1%
  • NZ First 3.1%
  • Conservative 1.8%

3News records Labour’s lowest ever result since the 1990’s. Winston Peters looks down and out. On both of these polls, plus the Fairfax poll yesterday, National can govern alone but only just.

This makes it very important that National voter in Epsom votes for John Banks with their electorate vote. ACT are polling high enought to bring at elast another MP in and therefore shore up the centre right. They shouldn;t fall for the wishes of Labour and the Greens who are voting for Paul Goldsmith in order to kill of National’s only real coalition partner.

Voting for Paul Goldsmith in Epsom is voting for a Phil Goff government, with Winston Peters, Hone Harawira and the Greens all adding their billions of spending onto Labour debt laden election promises.

National’s voters need to turn out and party vote National. The election is close and this too makes a mockery of MMP where NZ most popular Prime Minister since records began and a party that commands around 50% of the vote can be tipped from power by a bunch of also rans who barely command 5% or in the case of the Greens under 15% and Labour under a quarter of votes.

You could well end up with a government that is run by someone with just barely 25% of the vote. This is why MMP must be dumped. Vote for Change in the referendum, dump MMP and vote for SM. Let’s stop the ridiculous situation where the Winston peters and Hone harawiras of this world command so much more power than they really deserve.

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.
