THE ANGLOSPHERE'S INEXORABLE RIGHTWARD DRIFT:

National well ahead in poll on economic leadership (Paula Oliver, 11/06/08, New Zealand Herald)

National is a clear favourite to best steer the economy through an international downturn, according to a new Herald-DigiPoll survey taken just days out from the election. [...]

With just two days to go until New Zealanders cast their ballots, the poll results suggest National is winning the battle to convince voters who would be the best economic manager.

Underlining this is the strong support National also enjoys when it comes to which party voters think will lead the next government.

National rated 49.5 per cent, and Labour was trailing on 36.8 per cent. National's backing is particularly strong among males, with 56 per cent of men naming the party as the best handler of the economy and 52.9 per cent thinking it will lead the next government.
