The Greens achieve the impossible: Make Nick Smith look good!

Claims by the Green Party that its polls show it is going to win the Nelson seat this Saturday shows just how desperate they have become since their slump in the polls says Nelson MP Nick Smith.

“The Green Party is push polling in an attempt to manipulate Saturday’s result with alternative facts in the last week before the election,” Dr Smith says.

“This sort of polling is banned in some countries and it reflects poorly on the Greens that they have resorted to this tactic to try and save themselves.”

Push polling is when a poll is conducted in such a biased way that rather than trying to predict the election outcome, it tries to skew it by asking leading questions.

“The poll question ‘Which candidate between the Green’s Matt Lawrey and Labour’s Rachel Boyack will beat Nick Smith?’ will never give a fair reading of public opinion on who is going to win the election,” Dr Smith says.

“The poll question is also at odds with the Memorandum of Understanding between Labour and the Greens, undermining how they could work together in any Government.

“I have been contacted by dozens of Nelsonians offended by the poll and this underhand tactic, who rightly refused to participate. The fact that most respondents when faced with such a biased question, still indicated their support, shows the strength of my support.

“Green Party Leader James Shaw needs to distance himself from his Nelson candidate rather than support him for his poor judgement or risk even further degrading the Green Party’s already seriously damaged brand.”

Oddly enough, Nick Smith is the Green party’s best friend.  The quicker National gives him the heave-ho the better.  But in another display of total stupidity they’ve taken the low road and tried to screw the scrum in Nelson.

As a result, Nick Smith will be returned for another three years.   Rumours that he was about to be taken down by either the Green or Labour candidate were based on these fake Green party poll results.

Not only will they now fail – they’ve ensured Nick Smith will torture National voters.

Thanks. A. Lot.

As for the Green party – what a compromised bunch of amateurs they have become.  There is not a gram of integrity left in that bunch.  They pretend to care about the environment, but the Greens that did have disappeared from the party.  The last two resigned on principle.   The remainder are so caught up in their own self-righteousness that they have no contact with reality.
