If Hone Harawira had a dollar every time the media wrote off his chance of winning Te Tai Tokerau, he would have more money than Kim Dotcom.
Remember the by-election? Hone was 1 point ahead of Kelvin in an exact remake of the current Maori TV poll, how much did Hone end up beating Kelvin? By 9 points. That’s right, on the day, past the landline biased polls, Hone thrashed Kelvin convincingly.
I love how no one ever looks at the past results for some insight before breathlessly holding up the current one.
That’s what has happened in the past, that’s what will happen on Saturday.
