A famous quote comes to mind:
The bad news is that if an election was held tomorrow, you would lose …
The good news is there is no election tomorrow! 🙂
However there is one in three weeks.
The NZ Herald Digipoll shows a large 9% gap. It was 14% before tax cuts announced and 6% after tax cuts. I don’t think one needs to be Colin James to conclude that it has been a messy week for National.
The NZ Herald editorial is a fair summary in my view. As they say, there are three long weeks to go.
