National’s boring, no good conference

The National Party conference last weekend was a conference for the Key era. Key was personally popular, had fantastic poll ratings and was extremely well known. Current Leader Simon Bridges is not well known, not well liked and has poor poll ratings.

In the past National have been governed by a desire to win over the swing voters in the middle. These are usually women, predominantly 30-45 and they are concerned that National are uncaring and unsympathetic. So policies, campaigns, slogans and messaging has targeted this group at the expense of trying to turn out the National Party base . . .
