From today's Herald on Sunday:
A 3 News Reid-Research poll has revealed 55 per cent of voters think Little is potentially a better match for Prime Minister John Key than his Labour Party leader predecessors.
If I'd been asked, I'd be in the 55%. Look what the respondent is being asked to compare him to.
3 News political editor Patrick Gower said the poll result was a huge boost for Little.Why?
I think he's 'better' because he appears more decisive. But he decided to do two things that made the chance of me voting Labour even more remote - scrapping the end of life bill and moves to raise the Super qualifying age.
In any case, each of Labour's recent incoming leaders has enjoyed initial support and confidence. Hasn't lasted though.
