National slump in Roy Morgan poll

The March Roy Morgan poll is most notable for the slump in support for National. This has happened before, followed by a bounce back, so it will take another poll or two to find out if this is a temporary swing or becomes a trend.

  • National 43.5% (down from 48)
  • Labour 29.5% (up from 26)
  • Greens 14.5% (up from 13)
  • NZ First 7.5% (down from 8)
  • Maori Party 2% (unchanged)
  • ACT 0.5% (down from 1)
  • United Future 0.5% (up from 0)
  • Conservative Party 0.5% (up from 0)
  • Independent/Others 1% (down from 2)

This should  be making National a bit nervous. They dropped to 41.5% in September 2016 but bounced back to 48% the following month.

Labour may be a bit happy but below 30 is still not flash for them.

However a Newshub/Reid Research poll out today has more ‘normal’ results, with National on 47.1%, Labour on 30.8%, Greens on 11.2% and NZ First on 7.6%.

      “The latest Newshub Reid Research poll has deputy leader Ms Ardern on 10.5 percent in the preferred Prime Minister stakes, more than 2 points higher than leader Andrew Little who is on 8.3 percent.”

      I doubt that, tbh. All we did was vote for a resolution criticising Israel for carrying on stealing Palestinian land. We tend to do that anyway. I don’t think too many people were happy with Bibi’s attempts to bully us.

    Jacinda more popular as preferred PM than Little. Nevermind, Andy. Team Adern-Little all the way!

      That’s the only story TV3 is running with from this poll, that Little is running scared of Ardern……..

        If he was scared of her he wouldn’t have appointed her. God, the MSM can be thick sometimes.

    Time for Andy to invest in a stab-proof vest. Forget Billy on 25%. As Pete says, that was to be expected. You don’t replace a Ferrari with a Ford Focus and expect the neighbours to be impressed. Again, the idiocy of Labour not changing leaders last year. What will they to do if they win the election? What a mess.

      Some people care not about impressing the neighbours.Mind you keeping up with the Jones is the raison d’etre’ of many RWNJ’s.

        You are on the wrong thread…you are meant to be spinning your spiel in support of Nick the Left-wing Traitor.” You guys just hate western civilisation.
