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.
