Why The Difference In Green Support?

Why does the poll taken for the tv station that practices gutter journalism show the Greens at 8.8% and the Herald DigiPoll show them at 5.4%?

Methodology may be an issue (we don't rate the tv poll at present). But timing may also be an issue. The tv station poll was taken before the Greens announced their decision to join the Axis. The Herald DigiPoll is showing up the initial effect that this decision has had on support. Much of the loss of support has gone to Labour now that the two parties have become so indistinguishable.
