Fairfax/IPSOS poll demoralising for Labour

The May 2014 Fairfax/IPSOS poll must be demoralising for Labour. Theoretically National should be suffering but they have only dropped a little to 47.6% but Labour have dropped 2.3 to 29.5% in a continung trend downwards.

  • National 47.6% (-1.8)
  • Labour 29.5% (-2.3)
  • Greens 12.7% (+2.7)
  • NZ First 3.7% (+0.1)
  • Maori Party 1.9% (+0.8)
  • Conservative Party 1.6% (-0.4)
  • ACT Party 0.9% (+0.3)
  • Mana Party 0.5% (+0.2)
  • United Future 0.1% (no change)

Labour should also be concerned about David Cunliffe’s drop in Preferred Prime Minister:

  • John Key 48.6% (-1.0)
  • David Cunliffe 13.4% (-3.9)
  • Winston Peters 3.4% (+0.6)
  • Russel Norman 1.8% (+0.2)
  • Metiria Turei 0.3% (-0.8)

The poll was conducted between May 10 and May 12, surveying 1011 people by telephone. It has a maximum margin of error of plus or minus 3 per cent. Percentages are based on the 826 decided voters who intend to vote. Those who are undecided or do not intend to vote are excluded.
