Patrick Gower: This election, it is all on the line

OPINION: The crucial and final poll results can be summed up like this: It is all on the line.

Either side can win this election.

Power is in the balance.

National has done all it can to hang to just above 45 percent - but it will still need Winston Peters.

Labour with its "frenemies" the Greens can get within touching distance of National - but will still need Winston Peters.

And Winston Peters is there.

Lots of Kiwis will be wondering who will win. The truth is - it is impossible to tell.

Small changes in the party percentages can make a very big difference - they could push National out to safety, or they could push a Labour-Green Government into the box seat.

The control of New Zealand is in the balance.

It really is all on the line this election.

Every vote will count.
