Who might be an MP on the average of the polls

The Curia average of the public polls has the parties as:

  • National 43.3%, 54 seats
  • Labour 39.7%, 49 seats
  • Greens 6.6%, 8 seats
  • NZ First 6.5%, 8 seats
  • TOP 1.6%, 0 seats
  • Maori Party 1.0%, 2 seats (one overhang)
  • ACT 0.4%, 1 seat (one overhang)
  • United Future 0.1%, 0 seats

Now this average includes all the done by the main public pollsters during an election but time and size weights them. This means it includes the earlier One News Colmar Brunton polls that showed Labour leading.  The two final TV polls have 100% weighting, the ones from the week prior have 87% and 84%, the two before that 65% weighting and the two from the start of the campaign around 45% each. I’m not saying this weighted average will be accurate. It has been pretty accurate in the past, but the huge variability in the One News Colmar Brunton poll has impacted the average and has National lower than the final two TV polls this week.

So anyway who will be a Member of Parliament under this poll? First we need to decide on electorate seats. The only public polls showing a change are Ohariu going to Greg O’Connor and Te Tai Hauauru going to Howie Tamati from the Maori Party. I believe there will be mroe changes than that, but as I’ve done polling in a number of seats for a number of clients, I can’t be explicit about what they are. So the electorate seat assumptions are based on the public polls, and are not my private predictions.
