Goff struggling to attract the numbers

Labour List MP Sue Moroney has been tweeting excitedly about the crowd who attended a public meeting today with Hon Phil Goff:

Before getting too excited, Sue should really ask around to see how many people turned up to last week’s public meeting with Hon John Key.  Even going by the Waikato Times numbers there were twice as many people who turned out on a stormy night for a Q and A session with the PM.  Actual numbers attending the PM’s public meeting were more than 300.
Surely today was the best timing  for Hon Phil Goff.  He is at his peak.
  • It is the day after his and Labour’s big tax package announcement
  • It is a beautiful sunny day in Hamilton
But Phil and his local List MP could only attract 100 people.  It’s a hard road to the election for Goff.
