Poll bad for National, still not flash for Labour

National has dropped drastically to 42.5% in the latest Roy Morgan poll and although Labour have recovered they are still only 31%.

  • National 42.5% (down 6)
  • Labour 31.0% (up 2.5)
  • Greens 14.5 (up 3)
  • NZ First 6.0% (up 0.5)
  • Internet Party 1.5% (up 0.5%)
  • Maori Party 1 (unchanged)
  • Mana Party 1.0% (unchanged)
  • ACT NZ 0.5% ( unchanged)
  • United Future 0.5% (up 0.5)
  • Conservative Party 0.5% (down 1.5%).

The electorate does not seem very happy with the major parties.Bad for National, a bit of a bounce back for Labour but still not flash for them. The public don’t seem happy with either major party, Labour still – 33% has been their highest this year in the first poll of the year, and National again – two polls ago in March they were 43%, then up to 48.5 and now down to 42.5%.

The smaller parties benefit except for Conservatives.

A couple of interesting totals:

Labour 31  compared to Green+NZ First+Mana 21.5
If you add Internet Party that’s 31 to 24.

It would be interesting if they had an option “Pissed off with all”.


Roy Morgan 2 May 2014

Electors were asked:
“If a New Zealand Election were held today which party would receive your party vote?”
This latest New Zealand Roy Morgan Pollon voting intention was conducted by telephone – both landline and mobile telephone, with a NZ wide cross-section of 847 electors from April 21–May 4, 2014. Of all electors surveyed 6% (up 1%) didn’t name a party.

    “It would be interesting if they had an option “Pissed off with all”.”

    That’s how I feel, its basically a competition between Team Rich Jerks and the flaky Neo Marxists.

      In 2011 election about 30% voted for the ‘pissed off with all’ party. It was called : DID NOT BOTHER TO VOTE ! But the reality was it just returned the ‘Key party cronies’ to power.
