National supporters' strange coalition preferences

Polled National Party supporters are not thinking particularly hard about coalition preferences if the latest round of surveys is anything to go by. Nearly a third (30.2 percent) want a deal with NZ First. NZ First are unlikely to be in Parliament on current polling. More than a fifth (21.8 percent) want a deal with UnitedFuture - who is likely to have just one MP. Nearly a fifth 17.8 percent) want a deal with the Greens -and thats higher than those ( 11.4 percent) who want a deal with the Maori Party, the party likely to be the third biggest party in Parliament.

Why twice as many Nats want a deal with UnitedFuture than the Maori Party, and nearly three times the number of Nats want a NZ First deal as opposed to the Maori Party is beyond me. Somebody his going to have to vote for them to give them some numbers - and if that happens they are likely to come from these voters who say they want to vote National.
