It’s only a poll but National’s 18 points ahead

Yes, yes, I know only one poll counts and that a lot can happen between here and the ballot box.

But I’m relieved that the latest One News Colmar Brunton poll shows that some of the mud in which Winston Peters has bogged himself is beginning to stick to Labour.

The poll of 1000 people which has a margin of error of 3.1% showed:

National 53%; Labour 35%; Green Party 5; Act 2%; Maori Party1.8% ;New Zealand First 1.8%.

John Key had 40% support as preferred Prime Minister, Helen Clark had 31% and defying all reason 3% of respondents would tick Winston Peters.

The report will be on line here soon.

    One swallow doesn’t make a summer, but it’s decidedly spring-like!

    Yep Inventory, it is fantastic to see that the mud starts to stick and hopefully will dry up in festering dags..

    I was taste testing Michelle Richardsons’ fine pinot gris when I saw the poll results.
    When I saw them I decided to throw caution to the wind and celebrate with some fine neudorf motuere chardonay.
    Nectar of the gods that stuff with the MR PG close behind.

  4. $10 Italian Vino Frizzante for me from PakNSave.
    But yes, a good poll like this is worth more.
    Mount Riley sauv blanc is chilling as we speak.

    It will be real French champers on election night, all being well.
