Māori Party – 1.9%
Labour have crashed in this Poll and the reality of a National/ACT Government is now upon us.
Chloe Swarbrick – She is more popular than the actual co-leaders! Why isn’t she the leader?
Hamilton West Byelection – This poll makes the byelection even more important and symbolic with momentum going into the Summer of an election year hinging on who will win and by how much.
National – Despite the bullshit of their taxation policy for the 5% richest and Luxon working at McDonalds, the anti Labour momentum has given National an enormous psychological win.
NZF – If Winston’s 3.3% this close to the election, he’s 5% on the day.
Labour – Their caution has cost them, the lack of transformative change has finally caught up to them
Jacinda – Her popularity is Labour’s. Her popularity wanes, so does Labour’s.
CTU – Maybe if they had worked a tad more on getting that fact showing $6Billion of National’s tax cuts will go to the top 5%, Labour wouldn’t be haemorrhaging votes. Less time on bullshit things like the PSA gold plated holiday theme and more focus on the actual issues confronting all workers, not just their mates.
ACT – 10% is pretty low for ACT, they would have hoped for a far larger share.
Greens – Who? And I make that joke as an actual Green voter.
Woke Identity Politics Activists – Well done comrades, you’ve alienated and cancelled almost every voter. I’m excited to see how you will win them back using hate speech legislation.
I think the Roy Morgan Poll is out tomorrow and the next TVNZ Poll will be out within a week as well. If they confirm Newshubs, there are real problems for Labour.
Today’s conference saw Labour finally move towards subsiding universal services that can directly save people money rather than simply lift welfare which gets clawed back by WINZ and MSD.
To combat the cost of living crisis Labour must look at free childcare, free breakfasts and lunches in school and free public transport because those benefits help everyone, not just the incredibly low thresholds that welfare provide.
By subsiding universal services and making them free, Labour would put money directly back into the pockets of those needing that help the most without MSD and WINZ getting in the way.
National’s counter offer is to put over $5Billion into the pockets of the richest 5% of NZ, once voters appreciate the enormity of inequality National are intending to implement, they will give Labour a second look.
I appreciate Covid has hurt us, and I appreciate that many former Labour voting males have walked away in disgust at the woke madness, but don’t pretend that voting National is a solution to being pissed off with Labour because an ACT/National Government will only make inequality immeasurably worse in this country.
Don’t buy Chris’s de-unionised Happy Meal, it’s poison.
