Valedictory speeches I never hope to hear

In these last days of Helengrad, one could be thankful that I will not have to endure such speeches from the likes of Helen, Michael and Winston.

Hoisted by their own petard, I wonder if they will cede graciously on Saturday?

DPF blogged recently the electorate vote outcome based on some recent local polls
It therefore seems logical to use the same data to get some idea of the party vote situation
After all is is the same people being asked.
So it follows that the percieved shift to National is not as great as some of the commentators here maintain
It is going to be a very close and nailbiting finish

Nationals polling numbers in the last 3 local polls

Palm Nrth Latest poll 36.0% 2005 election 36.69
Nelson Latest poll 40.4% 2005 election 37.01
West Cst Latest poll 44.7% 2005 election 39.59
AVG 40,36 AVG 37,63

Nationaly this would put the Nats on about 42%
Any thoughts?

One can only vote and hope.
