Leaked National Party Poll – Labour 55% National 34%

With Muller promising to throw open the borders as soon as he can to appease wealthy National Party backers who need to exploit migrant workers, international students or pimp hyper tourism, the country’s health is at risk if National becomes the Government so who wins in September matters.

Thankfully National are so riven with betrayal and anger after the coup against Simon Bridges that they are leaking damaging info to Tova O’Brien faster than Trump running down a ramp…

National Party’s internal polling revealed as caucus springs another leak

The National Party caucus has sprung yet another leak. 

Newshub can reveal the party’s internal polling – which was finally shown to MPs on Tuesday – and it’s not great news for leader Todd Muller.

National MPs leaking from their sealed caucus room told Newshub they were shown slides of internal poll trends but were given no numbers.

When pushed, the leadership told MPs Labour is on about 55 percent and National 34 percent. That’s less than the 35 percent the party was polling under former leader Simon Bridges the week before Muller rolled him.

…ouch.

Labour on 55% and National only on 34% and this is National’s own internals?

This is bad, but not as bad as the fact it’s being leaked.

That the leaks are still happening tells us that Muller is just a place holder until the internal factions can reassert themselves after the loss in September.

Despite the quarantine border cock ups, the vast majority of New Zealanders see Jacinda handling this better than Muller and his call to open the borders quickly is starting to look as delusional as Trump.

  1. No wonder Paula Bennett jumped ship. With internal poll results this bad I won’t be surprised to see a few more Nat MPs join her before the election too.

    All we need now for an election rout of National is for Muller to keep making stupid comments about opening the country up to tourists soon, the antithesis of what most sane Kiwis want.

    • Nah no worries, mate. The stunned Mullet is seen for what he is,… a Chihuahua yapping at the heels of an elephant. And come election time that elephant is going to step on that yapper and hardly notice it was ever there. As will most Kiwis.

  2. Muller is a clueless rain cloud.

    All we get is the huff and puff on a daily basis saying everything is a “shambles” and “outrageous”. And with his colleagues, inventing homeless men staying at 5 star hotels.

    Relentless negativity is so totally 2019!

  3. The left need Muller to continue as leader. Tolley and Bennett leaving with a fair amount of baggage hanging over their heads,Collins tell all biography on the so called “Boys club” of the National party, Woodhouses outright lies on a homeless man and Hooten as a team member.
    Well, as many right wingers sarcastically say on their post here, “Labour are a shoe in.”

    When will the right realise “dirty politics” is dead, it’s had it’s time. The problem is that most see that the previous 9 years when they were Government, achieved nothing for most New Zealanders. We got rhetoric and roads, the public services were underfunded and undervalued. The borders were a free for all and people’s cars became their homes. Those who were able to afford to rent became tenants to overseas investors. The biggest issue, health, was so terribly underfunded per person by National that we now require a massive review.
    So with little time left before the election, Muller stands before you with no policy, promising not to attack the Government, telling the public to trust National. Hell, if you listen and read between the lines, not even Bennett or Collins have trust in National. I have no trust in the people in the National party, particularly if people like Smith, Brownlee and in particular Woodhouse, who one could be a straight out liar for political gain are part of the National party.
    Labour are far from perfect, yet are a far better prospect for “all New Zealanders”

  5. Do Not Get Complacent is all I can say.

    First off–Fight. Fight. Fight. for burying Nashnull. Send them to where they belong.

    …and after the election–Fight. Fight. Fight.–to roll back Neo Liberalism.

    • Totally agree, TM. In strongest possible terms.

      The complacency of many, helped that other joker in a MAGA hat get over the line.

      There is so much that needs to change. But the time for that is after September, if it’s to happen at all.

    • 2nd that. People have no idea what is about to hit us.
      People will be queuing up for a bowl of gruel.
      This will play totally into Nats hands as they attack the needy.
      Don’t forget ACT either. Stop talking them up as some kind of cool gNatzi.
      (That was directed to Martyn not you).
      They are even worse.

  6. Train-wreck Trump with his dopey MAGA hat, divested power to the states to control Covid. ‘Open up businesses and the virus will disappear.’ No National strategy to test, track and trace. And the Covid-19 cases are surging unchecked by his anti-science ignorance and narcissism.

    This magical thinking is being emulated here by train-wreck Todd.

    “Open up the borders! The National Party have invested heavily in unicorn milk, which has been scientifically tested in the USA, to make us all immune from Covid-19 infection.”

    “I’ve been taking unicorn milk since rolling Simon and Paula. I have been around Chris Bishop and Michael Woodhouse, who have both had multiple contacts with symptomatic and asymptomatic quarantinoes. Michael also tells me he had close contact with a homeless person, who mixed with Covid-infected quarantined people,” “I’m clear of Covid he asserted and I won’t wear a mask, even when Covid gets here because I have multi-levels of immunity”

    “I’m clear of Covid and we can magically keep it out by getting the 5 million Kiwi team to breathe in unison and blow the Covid particles westward, every 1/2 hour.”

    “But, once we immediately open up our borders to the USA, when Covid-19 does get here, we will allow mayors and councils to deal with any local outbreaks!”

    “If my unicorn milk runs out, my MAGA hat will protect me, like it has President Trump (my hero and mentor). It has also been scientifically proven that red MAGA hats are as effective as hydroxy-choloroquine and lacto-unicorn-o-choloro-quin,”, tweeted Todd.

    Maybe we need less US interference in our National and local body elections, because we’ve been seeing increasing US and foreign interference since 1984, with ACT and the Chicago School of Economic Neo-liberals. What about 2013 John Palino, Luigi Wewege and the Auckland Mayoral race? Now we have the Marijuana referendum interference, and recently with ACT and the Gun Lobby.

    The Greens saw a rough draft of this post and immediately declared unicorns an endangered and protected species, not to be exploited for pecuniary or National gain. The Greens asked Todd to be a replacement comedian at their upcoming launch, as Rose Matafeo was “unavailable”.

    ACT also saw a draft and want to impose a flat tax of 40% on New Zealand sales of lacto-unicorn-o-choloro-quin.

    As a prominent Nat-o-phile opined on ZB “Happy days!”

  7. It will get closer once Labour announce their intentions on tax policy. The middle will hate the thought of not being able to afford a new TV and car and having a decent holiday. Also we still haven’t seen the great corporate employment cull – this will happen as the drums are beating faster and faster. Robbo can’t hold them at bay for all of eternity…..

  8. You have to laugh when desperate power hungry opposition MP’s claim their upcoming retirement is not related in any way to the current leadership.

    Jonathan Coleman makes a faux commitment to voters during the 2017 election campaign. He then applies to be their leader when the Dipton Double Dipper “retired”. He again repeated his commitment to the party bla bla bla with his leadership challenge. Bridges becomes the new leader, nek minute, Coleman has a different commitment and forces a costly by-election. Nothing to do with Bridges being leader he adamantly claims.

    Steven Joyce vows his commitment to the party bla bla bla in his quest to become party leader. Simon Bridges becomes leader. Nek minute Joyce wants to spend time with family and retires. He states his retirement is unrelated to Bridges being leader bla bla bla.

    Amy Adams states she is retiring to spend more time with family. She goes out of her way to state her retirement is nothing to do with the then leader Simon Bridges.

    Nek minute. Simon Bridges is arseholed out and replaced by Mr Nothing Muller. All of a sudden Adams no longer wants to spend time with family. If you examine that statement, it highlights some people are either not that keen on family or not that keen on speaking the truth.

    Amy Adams states her new updated decision not to retire is unrelated to Simon Bridges no longer being the leader. Haha.

    One thing we know for sure is that certain National Party MP’s wouldn’t know the truth if they tripped over it and must believe all New Zealanders haven’t got the brains they were born with.

    I’m stoked Muller is not getting any traction. To reward a person for the dubious conduct he has displayed will only guarantee more of the same. He’s a despicable character unfit to babysit a pet hamster let alone lead a country. It must be said that if he’s the best National can put up to lead them, it speaks volumes about their “terrifically talented team”. It does however explain why so many rats are jumping off the sinking ship. National will be wiped out in September and even many of them can now see the writing on the wall.

    Watch what happens in the days after the September election. The “terrifically talented team” will dump Muller at rocket speed. No doubt he will then say it’s been a hell of a ride and he’s enjoyed every minute of it. Haha, of course you have. It’s a rare breed that enjoys routinely being exposed as a clueless plonker slipping on every banana skin possible and then be humiliated by his own colleagues.

  9. Its not the number, its the trend and its not heading in labours favour taking into account all the surveys masquerading as polls lately.
    All it means is that either the Maori party or/and NZF will be the King or Princess maker come 19 September.

  10. Why release this poll to Tova O’B? Isn’t she a cheer-leader for the Natz? Certainly always sounds like it.
    I advise real caution here… What if… what if it’s a deliberately misleading plant so as to make Left voters really really complacent. Y’know, “why bother voting if they’re a shoe-in?”
    Dirty politics is alive and well and when you look at the people running the show for Natz, there’s a large dung-hill there of dirty politics to make the Left very very wary of this poll. It could all be a big bluff.
    Don’t even LOOK for the laurels to rest on, Labour. Go hard, very hard! Just do it! Right to midnight on September 18!!

    • Tova O’B is primarily a cheer leader for Tova O’B. Being the recipient of leaks tells everyone she is an IMPORTANT journalist with connections. Personal politics comes second to personal ambition.

  11. I don’t understand how if Labour is on 55%, how on earth could National possibly be polling as high as 34%? just doesn’t add up to my simple math.
