Te Hamua Nikora
“So much for all the talk about this being a Labour Party seat” said MANA Leader and MP for Te Tai Tokerau Hone Harawira. “If the polls mean anything then the Ikaroa-Rawhiti race is wide open, with Te Hamua out in front by a long way”.
“Radio Waatea ran a poll that put Te Hamua on 53% and the Labour candidate on less than 10%. He’s ahead on the Radio Ngati Porou poll, he’s ahead in the Gisborne Herald poll, and he’s ahead on all the Facebook polls as well”.
“And for those who aren’t into polls, I can also report that over the weekend, our people door-knocked more than 1,000 houses and support for Te Hamua was more than 70%”.
“People can be sceptical of polls and door-knocking exercises, but the evidence is pretty overwhelming”.
“Te Hamua is more than just a candidate in this race. He’s the clear leader with the others struggling to match his support in the polls and on the streets”.
