The TV3 Poll shows National and Labour nexk and neck. Frankly I am amazed it does not show Labour in the lead after the last couple of weeks.
Mallard’s accusations about the US funding and writing policies for National were made up, but nevertheless mud tends to stick, which is why he did it. I honestly expected TV3 (which is normally the worst poll for National) to show Labour leading.
I tend to try and stay away from predicting polls, but all I will say is I expect the lead to change at least a couple of times between now and election day. I would be very surprised if either party took a big lead and never lost it. The final weeks may well prove crucial.
