. . . who do you believe on why Jami-Lee Ross has pulled out of the contest for the Botany electorate?
. . . It’s a safe National seat, but Ross said he believes it was a three-way race this election between himself, Luxon and Labour’s candidate, Naisi Chen.
Or David Farrar:
. . . In no way was it a three way race. In a poll done by Curia in August 2020, Jami-Lee Ross was at 1.8%. And no that is not a typo – 1.8% not 18%.
Jami-Lee has pulled out because he knew it was going to be a humiliating thrashing. Otherwise he would still be standing.
A disgraced politician or an experienced and highly regarded pollster?
I believe the pollster.
