Normally I don't comment on polls, leaving it to the party hack blogs to crow or mutter about respectively. But there is one interesting thing in the Herald's latest one:
Asked about Mr Peters leading a coalition with National, 45.7 per cent of poll respondents believed it would be better than Dr Brash leading it; 38.8 per cent thought it would be worse; and 15.5 per cent didn't know or refused to answer.
Support for the idea was obviously lower among National supporters, but still, what does it say about their leader when people would prefer Winston Peters over him? And what does it say about the popularity of the sorts of policies he would pursue?
