Simple visualisation of the latest Roy Morgan poll. Perhaps strategically the National Party and New Zealand First Party missed the opportunity to strengthen their Māori engagement and missing out on voters who would have liked to have seen that representation.
With many Māori concerned about the performance of the Labour Party Māori members of parliament there might have been votes available. In my opinion the far-right/alt-right strategy is going to loose in Aotearoa, fighting over scraps.
Oh well, see what happens, maybe there is a 'sleeping giant' base of voters or 'silent majority' just waiting to pounce out.
