    Default Party Vote Poll

    OK, I reckon time for us to show our hands if we feel so inclined. So I'll get the ball rolling.

    Last time around I voted National for my electorate vote and ACt for my Party vote. This time around I am not giving National my party vote. Two main reasons. I think the sale of state assets was wrong. I also think Key, and in particular Brownlee have their heads in the sand as far as EQC is concerned. I'm still battling and have yet to have made any progress on my place. Four years on is too long - and I'm far from the worst off. ACT doesn't get my vote either. I think they have simply imploded with no credible option. I cant see my vote adding to the number of seats they have in parliament. I certainly don't want the Greens any where near Treasury and I'm not keen at all on Internet Mana having an influence so I cant put a vote near the left Block as that may give these parties a chance at the reigns.

    So I've decided, despite the the god botherers to go with Conservative. I don't have any difficulty with the referendum issue - if the majority of the people are mad I'll bow to their wishes. $20,000 tax free earnings I think works well as a reward for getting into work. I have no difficulty with biffing miscreants in the clink and throwing away the key. And binning the Maori seats is good - let Maori vote for Mana or Maori party - there is no shortage of options to represent their interests.

    There you have it. Your turn.

    I was going to vote labour if the polls looked like they'll win with a coalition (originally was because of one policy) as I want them the stronger partner. Decided to hell with it and will not as Belg has put me off left wing fanatics completely. Would have voted National as the natural opposite of Labour but Hekia Parata grinds me . Now they may need a coalition partner, I may vote winston first (with a grimace) as I can't stand right wing,bigoted nut cases like the conservatives either. Thats not saying they don't have the odd good idea,like most parties.

    So,all in all, personality politics. Like most of NZ I suspect. Of note is my 85 y/o die hard labour supporter mother voted National today. She can't stand DC and is an athiest so that put her off the conservatives. Not sure why she didn't consider Winston. Maybe because she can smell bull s$&t a mile away.

    Gerry gets my vote in ChCh. Haven't a clue who the other guy is. Sympahize with your troubles though Minimoke. Hope it sorts for you soon.

    Thinking on the fly all parties have one leader. Except the Greens who have two. So they warrant two slots. You still only get to vote once

    I think the Greens have some good policies and are really much more progressive than most of the others.
    The dishonesty and underhand tactics of National should be a real concern to all voters.If you are prepared to go along with their behaviour then I think NZ is heading down a bad road.
    So, Nasties no from me, I'd like the Greens to have more influence.

    Good poll so far too mini. It's good to hear others reasoning. Everybody gets an opinion in a democracy and everybody has to accept it at the ballot box.
    We're all wired a bit different aye.

    A vote for Winston first may well be a vote for Labour. If Winnie can screw the finance portfolio out of Cunliffe, that's where he'll go. He'll have to beat Norman to it, but that won't be hard. Cunliffe will have heaps of baubles to give out, because he'll lose a good few his top performers by the looks of things. And don't underestimate how much he wants to be P.M.

    It may be FP. But as I said, if the polls looked like it was going to be a labour led coalition I would do my bit to make them the strong partner. The less worse evil in control. I think it's going to be an academic argument as it will be a national led coalition. I have a four y/o so education policy is important to me. Allowing Parata to be the head of something so important,and fail in my view, means I can't vote Nats. I suspect conservatives would carry on from where ACT left off by further damaging education.

    I think Winnie would be happy with something juicy but not high demanding now. Who can really tell though.

    Bringing back hanging sounds like a conservative policy. There may well be a referendum on it

    She made mincemeat of Hipkins in the last two debates with him. He's not ministerial material.

    No doubt. She has a strong following among parents though, if not among teachers.

    I have just voted on this poll, I'm apparently the first to vote for Labour on this thread, but all my research tells me that National have not been doing the job as well as they could have, and I almost always liked the look of the Labour Government, when they were in last time.

    I hate being lied to, and National is doing that to us all the time. I'm surprised that even when this is pointed out by leaked emails and a book, National supporters and a fair chunk of the populace, choose to ignore them. It's real, we are being done, like a dog's dinner.

    Think you have that right, dogs dinner on election day. Biggest ballsup since Dunkirk, pretty even split with NZFirst and Conservatives over 5 %, six weeks of negotiation followed by several inquiries, a royal commission, ombudsman, and eventually a LABNAT coalition to put it all to rest. Cunliffe can work with Key and get rid of the dogsbodies, rubbish and complete crepe that has become our burden. Lets get on with it then.

    I voted but I had to keep a steady hand not to look at the current results lest I be swayed from the path of righteousness...

    And when I did look? Nothing surprising to see here. Obviously we have very few bourgeois, liberal, commie, socialists inhabiting these forums. This is a sharetrading forum so did we expect anything other than the Nats to win?

    I love my crooked government! Just in case those hard working boys at GCHQ are listening...

    I think most people consider all politicians to be liars. So they pick the one they dislike the most and vote for another. I drink at a working man's Club. Labour heartland you'd think but not by the conversions about DC.

    Surely that's meant to be conversations. I doubt that he's converted one single voter.
