Gareth Morgan is right, for once public polls dont help TOP at all "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

At TOP we commissioned a market research company to investigate voters attitudes towards our party. Their polling indicates that 1.5% of New Zealanders are committed TOP voters, no matter what. This aligns well with the landline poll results. It indicates a further 3% are most likely to vote TOP. This takes us to 4.5%. This []

If National loses, Pike River mine opens "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

NZ First can reveal that in late January, the Prime Minister received a proposal from Victoria University to re-enter Pike River mine using its robotic HADES underground mine disaster scout. Unmanned entry could easily have taken place by now, except this government does not want the public to learn the truth about whats in there, []

NZ Election Law deeply flawed "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Captains Call Definition "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Much has been made of Jacindas Captains Call  The Urban Dictionary defines this as:-

A decision made unilaterally by a team leader without consulting colleagues, often a massive clusterfuck.

This was a massive clusterfuck. An attempt to demonstrate that she is in charge and decisive has made her look weak. Furthermore, James Shaw on Q&A said this morning that the Greens want CGT as soon as possible and it was effectively a bottom line, so Jacindas flip-flop could well be overridden.

VOTE! "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Let's Do This Now! New Zealand is poised to repeat the circumstances that produced the shock British election result of 2015. Those with a retentive political memory will recall how both the pollsters and the pundits were predicting an extremely close election which could very easily see the Labour Leader of the Opposition, Ed Miliband, moving in to Number 10 Downing Street as Britains next prime minister. Didnt happen.

IF, ON ELECTION NIGHT 2017, you end up staring at the numbers in horrified disbelief. If National proves the people at Reid Research are the best pollsters in the business. If the Jacinda Train runs out of puff several percentage-points short of being able to form a government. If the Greens: the dear, earnest, tree-hugging Greens; fall below the 5 percent MMP threshold. If, after all these calamities, youre casting about in your anger and your grief for an explanation, then reclaim from the back of your mind this crucial piece of information from Elections New Zealand.

As at 15 September, just over a week out from Election Day, nearly 20,000 fewer young people under 30 [have] registered compared with 2014.

Got that? Notwithstanding the fact that the leadership of the Labour Party has passed to a young woman of 37. Notwithstanding the fact that Labour is promising to enact a suite of policies aimed directly at addressing the problems besetting young New Zealanders. Notwithstanding the fact that the most future-focused of all New Zealand political parties, the Greens, are at serious risk of being ushered out of Parliament altogether. Notwithstanding all of these things, fewer citizens under 30 have registered than three years ago!
