Stuff have been running a blog poll on whether Phil Goff would make a good successor to Helen Clark. A few people suggested yesterday I should promote it but I didn’t because they are very unscientific and no one should take them too seriously.
However I noted with amusement today that obviously the 9th floor was taking it seriously as the poll has now been amended to include the words “(This is a hypothetical question)”.
Ha ha ha – so precious. Demanding that it be made clear it is hypothetical, just in case readers thought the PM was dead or had resigned and no one had noticed I guess.
Even better Stuff then added on a third voting option – ” Your hypothetical question is not welcome”.
Sadly for the complainers the results to date are:
Yes (Goff would be good sucessor) 81% (1,359 votes)
No (Goff would be bad sucessor) 12% (198 votes)
Your hypothetical question is not welcome 7% (124 votes)
UPDATE: I was wrong. There were two different polls. See here for an explanation.
