Dodgy Polling from the Conservatives

Two days ago the Conservative Party said that their internal polls showed them winning in Napier.

We questioned this poll just like we questioned the dodgy polls in Rodney.

Now Colin Craig’s dodgy internal polls are telling him that Garth McVicar is winning in Napier.

Back then Colin Craig used Research First who have since parted ways with the seriously dodgy Roger Larkins.

Larkins now runs his own polling/research company and I’ll bet they were the ones who ran this poll in Napier

Knowing Larkins it is probably the same dodgy poll methodology in Napier as he used in Rodney?

The Conservatives’ plans to have Napier candidate Garth McVicar campaign around the country were scaled back after internal polling showed he was proving popular in his home electorate.

Instead of having Mr McVicar shaking hands and kissing babies across New Zealand, party leader Colin Craig has instead left him to focus his campaigning in Napier, in the hope he can win the seat.

So there is a snap poll that shows the conservatives are dreamin’.

Labour is ahead in the Napier electorate where the Conservative Party is performing strongly, according to a new poll.

Labour candidate Stuart Nash had 39 per cent support in a TVNZ Colmar Brunton poll on Saturday

National’s Wayne Walford was on 33 per cent and the Conservative Party’s Garth McVicar was on 22 per cent.

Every election Colin Craig pulls these polls out of his butt and every election he is proved wrong.

I don’t know why the media and the public fall for the shenangins of Colin Craig and his dodgy push polling.
