A few thoughts as to why the left didn't get traction during the last few weeks. To the general newspaper reading voter the perception is:
1. Oravida - she was 'hounded' for supporting a NZ company
2. Dirty Politics - a left wing conspiracy theory. Both sides do it.
3. Kim Dotcom - he's trying to buy his way into politics so he can stay in the country.
4. GCSB - look at what has just happened in Australia. I don't mind being spied on if it means we don't have beheadings in the street.
