The chart of doom for Andrew Little

David Farrar has posted the chart of doom:

labopp-560x366Those are the preferred Prime Minister ratings of the last four Labour leaders. It is rather telling.  

Andrew Little is now on a par with the worst years of Phil Goff and certainly worse than David Cunliffe (who was dreadful) and well under the lofty heights gained by David Shearer.

There is something interesting though: in election years the leader gets a boost. Phil Goff rose to the levels of David Shearer in the 2011 election and David Cunliffe rose to 14% in the 2014 election.

Andrew Little, though, starts below where Goff was, and even Cunliffe, in the lead up to the election but, crucially, an election is only worth 6-8% boost in popularity and not enough to win the treasury benches.

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.
