Is that the razor I can hear sharpening

Oh dear the echo-chamber, hate speech, lap-bloggers are going to be upset with the latest Roy Morgan poll, that despite their best wishes, hopes even, and dare I say it, prayers Labour is tanking.

The latest New Zealand Roy Morgan Poll shows the Roy Morgan Government Confidence Rating has jumped 19 points to 133.5 with 59.5% (up 10%) of New Zealanders saying New Zealand is ?heading in the right direction? compared to 26% (down 9%) that say New Zealand is ?heading in the wrong direction.?

At the same time support for John Key?s National-led Government is up 1% to 54.5%. Support for Prime Minister Key?s National Party is 52.5% (up 3.5%), the Maori Party 1.5% (down 1.5%), and ACT NZ 0.5% (down 1%).

Support for Opposition Parties is down 1% to 45.5% ? Labour Party 32.5% (down 2.5%), Greens 8%, (unchanged), New Zealand First 4% (up 1%), Progressive Party 0.5% (up 0.5%) and others 0.5% (unchanged).

If a National Election were held today the?National Party would easily be returned to Government.

Maryan Street and Ruth Dyson will have the razor strops out and the blades sharpening. Phil Goff may very well go the same way and method as Geoffrey Palmer and just before the election in a Hail Mary pass situation.

It is clear that Labour’s attempts to smear John Key as responsible for earthquakes, tsunamis and nuclear meltdowns aren’t working.
