Face of the Day

Gareth Morgan says polls showing he won’t make it into Parliament are wrong because they rely on the opinions of voters with landlines.

“When I ask the question in the town hall shows I do every night, ‘ Hands up those who’ve got a landline, it’s 10 or 15 percent,” the Opportunities Party (TOP) leader told The AM Show on Thursday.

“What’s wrong with these polling companies? I think we’ll be somewhere between 5 and 10 percent. I’ve said it from day one.”

TOP polled at 1.6 percent in the latest Newshub-Reid Research poll, and 2 percent in the most recent Colmar Brunton poll.

Only a man with this little grasp on reality could spend lots of his own money and then sit on TV either telling bald-faced lies or expressing his delusions.

For someone with money, he’s actually quite stingy.  If he was running a proper campaign, he would have stumped up some money to get a company to poll for him.  It’s not that expensive – in the scheme of things.

TOP is essentially a party for political lunatics.  It’s the 2017 version of the Internet party.   It even includes a balding bloke with money that speaks with a funny accent.
