Can we blame them?

It’s now Emirates Team New Zealand 8 – Oracle team USA 7.

Even worse – Labour has made a big gain in the latest Herald DigiPoll.

Is there a link, can we blame the former on the latter?

    Superstition is the belief in the causal nexus, or so I’ve been told. 🙂
    Seriously, the cause of the fall in support for National lies squarely at their feet. They have pursued unpopular policy and, this isn’t much of a surprise, that has decreased their popularity.
    Here’s why I’d be worried. 2011 was National’s zenith, right? The peak of their popularity. Yet it only translated into a tiny majority in parliament. By definition it’s downhill from here. So the following questions arise:
    How long will National remain in opposition? Only nine years, or more?
    How far from their current extreme right wing position will National have to move to become re-electable?

    The wind has changed, and the tide has turned. The exposed sand is littered with curious things, exposed now to the sun, writhing, shrivelling.

    “Extreme right wing position”? Hyperbole perhaps? Otherwise you’d have to be asking where your position is to call National (otherwise known as Liarbour lite) that.

    So, Robert, will the next 7% tide (if there is one) come away from the Blue beach or the Green?
