Surge in New Zealand confidence rating

Roy Morgan Government Confidence Rating: 146.5 pts (up 15.5 pts)

This is the highest confidence rating since January 2010, which was in the first term of the John Key led National government.

 “Generally speaking, do you feel that things in New Zealand are heading in the right direction or would you say things are seriously heading in the wrong direction?”

  • Right direction 66.5% (up from 58.5%)
  • Wrong direction 20% (down from 27.5%)
  • Can’t say 13.5% (little change from 14%)

That’s a positive shift.

National supporters may generally still have confidence while Labour/Green/NZ First supporters will have gained confidence.
