The Waterstone Election 2020 Podcast on The Daily Blog with Damien Grant and Martyn Bradbury discussing tonights TVNZ Poll.
Less than 7 weeks until the 2020 NZ election and the campaign is in full swing. NZ First attacks the Greens, the Greens attack NZ First, National attacks itself, again, ACT does nothing and still gains popularity and Labour are frightened they’ll have to do something if they gain a majority Government.
LABOUR: 60% on Newshub Poll, 53% on TVNZ Poll
Jacinda this week told supporters not to expect much policy as Labour panic with the realisation that as a majority government there are no excuses for the lack of transformative change – Jacinda will wish for Winston wont she?
NATIONAL: 25% on Newshub, 32% on TVNZ Poll
What on earth are they doing in Auckland Central by turning on their own candidate and will National be under 30%?
GREENS: 5.7% on Newshub, 5% on TVNZ Poll
They released a dense 52page manifesto and the electorate responded by them dropping to the 5% threshold – how have they alienated so many voters?
NZFIRST: 2% on Newshub 2% on TVNZ Poll
Spent the last week attacking the Greens but wont that just ensure people party vote Labour and not NZ First?
ACT: 3.3% on Newshub, 5% on TVNZ
Does David just say guns guns guns this election and hope that’s enough?
We are on Magic talk radio 2pm this Friday with Matthew Hooton.
Our next Election podcast is Tuesday next week and we are now going weekly through until the end of the election campaign.
