Newshub/Reid Research poll

The latest Newshub/Reid Research poll:

  • National 43.3% (-1.1)
  • Labour 39.4% (+6.3)
  • NZ First 6.6% (-2.6)
  • Greens 6.1% (-2.2)
  • TOP 1.9%
  • Maori Party 1.0%
  • ACT Party 0.6%

National are either still ahead or have nudged ahead again, but Labour are close (within margin or error territory).

Greens aren’t down as far as they have been in other polls recently.

NZ First are still slipping, as is Peters.

Preferred Prime Minister:

  • Bill English 30.1% (+2.4)
  • Jacinda Ardern 29.9% (+3.6)
  • Winston Peters 6.9% (-3.1)

Both English and Ardern have risen a bit since the last Reid research poll, but English has maintained a lead, just.

The poll was conducted from August 22-30, 2017 and has a margin of error of 3.1 percent.

    Three weeks is a long time in politics. Whoever said this was going to be a boring election couldn’t have been more wrong…

    This is what happens when you are transparent about tax working groups.

    NZ First are still slipping, as is Peters.

    So Winnies pension victimhood aint working out too well. Be interesting to see what used to be NZs premier political blog has to say tomorrow.

    • Nothing tonight but they have usually been very slow to post on current political happenings.

      The Standard is fairly slow off the mark too. Labour are still in a promising situation but the person who posts on polls may have the weekend off.

        His numbers are remarkably soft, all it took was a new Labour leader and half his support fell away in a fortnight.

        • I’m not surprised. he was being flattered and lulled into over confidence because Labour were seen as no hopers and support had to go somewhere.

          Ardern is a huge contrast to Peters and emphasises how out of date he has become.

  6. Peters’ tweet to Jones goes astray.

      I wonder when Winston will claim that the text is a National plot to discredit him?

    If the two main parties continue to hoover up swinging voters at this rate, then it could result in default referendum on MMP (i.e.a rejection of it).

    ACT to hold Epsom? Most likely
    UFNZ to hold Ohariu? No.
    NZ First to hold Northland? Don’t know.
    Maori Party to hold Waiariki? Don’t know.
    Greens to get to 5%? Don’t know.
