Will he get 1000 votes?

John Minto is not popular. He works hard at not being popular. The good news is the people of Manukau East can tell him exactly how unpopular he is on 26th of November.

A popular, likeable guy like Matt McCarten with hard left views won only 849 votes in the Mana By Election. The unpopular John Minto running in a general election will do well to get as many as Matt did.

Maybe this will provide him with a reality check that shows that his dated rhetoric is not relevant today. Unfortunately he did not run years ago because his dated rhetoric has never been relevant to New Zealand.
