Minor parties get no good news from Roy Morgan either

This has to be dreadful reading for the ACT party when Kim Dotcom’s Internet/Mana is getting double their support.

“Other” will include Gareth Morgan’s TOP, which is likely to be keeping the “Other” category that high.  It is normally about half of that.   Morgan would have hoped for more as well.

The Maori party would have hoped to have made more of an impact.  Shows you that media noise isn’t getting to the voters.  We probably know more about Tuku Morgan’s lust to rule the world as Hand of the King with Hone as a hired hand than most of the Maori voters do.

As for the Conservative party, they are learning the hard way that elections are won by having a presence in electorates.  Their Internet-centered approach to date hasn’t registered with voters.

So this blog’s readers have been toying with the idea of not voting for National and shifting their vote to NZ First or ACT.

Doing so ostensibly to “pull National to the right”.

It is hard to see that ACT will achieve that, even if they double or triple their support before September 23.

NZ First will not pull National to the right, but it does have policies on immigration, gun ownership, law and order and Treaty/One law for all issues that are likely to find support with disaffected National voters.

And National will not be able to form a government without NZ First on the current numbers.

Which leaves voters with the question:  If the idea is to curb National’s ever-more drift into socialism, would a stronger NZ First have more of an effect on this than a stronger ACT party?
