The enormity of the collapse in Labour vote and the power of ACT are now apparent with the latest Roy Morgan Poll.
NATIONAL – 40%
ACT – 10%
LABOUR – 31.5%
GREEN – 11.5%
NZF – 3%
People do not understand how far right ACT are and while Luxon is promising not to sell assets and while he is promising not not reduce benefits, David Seymour VERY much wants to take a rusty chainsaw to the State and amputate 5 Ministry’s plus the Human Rights Tribunal while cutting billions from welfare.
The idea that Luxon is going to be able to stop Seymour getting all he wants is ludicrous.
The quick yellow fox will jump over the lazy blue dog.
The only fly in the ointment of a far right National/ACT Government will be the possibility NZ First cross the 5% threshold and on a solid 3% here (he was 4% in the internal Labour Poll last month), there is a good chance Winston will be back and that will force Labour to include them if they can promise the Greens are on a leash.
Which will enrage the Greens.
