Taxpayers Astro Turf is out and even their polling has Labour stratospheric at 44.8% but the real trend is once again ACT canabalizing National vote.
Now TDB were the first to point out that what happened at the election with ACT scoring such a leap in the polls wasn’t a one off protest vote from disappointed National voters angry at an ugly campaign, we had been pointing out that ever since the woke handed free speech ammunition to ACT, David Seymour had become a lightening rod for right wing values in a social media world more focused on cancelling people or giving platform for White supremacist Qanon lunatics.
The insanity of the social media extremes made ACT look moderate which is terrifying because ACT policy is hard right…
- Cut and freeze the Minimum wage
- Interest back on all student loans
- No Kiwsaver subsidy
- Cancel winter energy payment
- Dump all climate crisis legislation
- no more best start payments for families with new borns
- cut welfare payments
- no tax credits for research and development
- cuts to working for families
- $7b a year cut in public services
- Abolish Maori seats
…the middle electorate will look at a hard right ACT and a socially conservative National and run fur the hills in 2023.
ACT will eclipse National next year during the woke Hate Speech legislation and the remaining National vote will prop up NZ First as a hand break to the Greens.
What if the pundits are wrong again and there is no recovery for National? Their demographic are dying off, and their ideological loyalty has gone. All National will be are a few South Island electorates and the pretense of a national identity they barely recognize any longer.
ACT and the extreme polarization they reflect are the new unhinged Right wing.
