Thomas Lumley explains the latest Roy Morgan poll… statistically:

According to the Herald

The latest Roy Morgan Poll shows support for the National Party has fallen two per cent since early June.

 The poll is based on 948 people, so the maximum margin of error (which is a good approximation for numbers near 50%) is about 3.2%, and the margin of error for a change between two polls is about 1.4 times larger: 4.6%.

In other word the poll shows not  much.

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.
