The Jacinda bubble appears to be bursting [Link] As one NZ politician commented, a lifetime of set principles does not suddenly snap on the lure of a 'smiley face'. Very interesting case study for a political science class, though. A party (Labour) severely in the doldrums saw its fortunes change dramatically entirely on the personality of a new leader, even as its substance and platform (ostensibly unpopular) hadn't changed. Style CAN conquer substance.

The National campaign has lacked positivity and the Labour campaign has lacked substance. There's a large postal vote, so it will be interesting to see how these recent opinion polls square up with the final results.
