Now we know why Trevor Mallard was interested in resurrection

Matthew Beveridge asked the question “How long before Labour and Green will poll the same?”

Colmar Brunton did some number crunching and released this graph


With the current trend line, that answer is:  Labour and Green will be polling around 20% each in 6-8 years time.  

As you can see, Labour’s woes have nothing to do with David Shearer.  And they have nothing to do with David Cunliffe.

Labour’s problem is a steady and consistent loss of support from a broad-based political party to a party of single issue nutters.   They are factionalised, and should really rename themselves to the New Alliance Party so that a new, true, Labour Party can take its place with appropriate Labour values to take the electorate into the 21st century.

One thing is for sure.  That graph proves the Labour Party is going the way of the Moa.    No wonder Trevor Mallard has been so interested in researching how to bring things back to life after death.
