Honeymoon over? Nah not likely

With the mainstream media repeaters trying ever so hard to end it themselves and talking National down and especially after the byelection you would think that the polls would show the honeymoon was over for National. They think we don’t notice.

Unfortunately for the repeaters the exact opposite is true and Phil Goff will again be looking over his shoulder as Trevor and Shearer line him up for an early shower.

In mid June support for John Key’s Coalition Government is 57.5% (unchanged) comprising National Party 52% (unchanged), Maori Party 2.5% (down 0.5%), ACT NZ 2.5% (up 0.5%), and United Future 0.5% (unchanged) according to the Roy Morgan New Zealand Poll conducted June 1-14, 2009.

Support for Opposition parties is 42.5% (unchanged) — Labour Party 33% (up 2%), Greens 7.5% (down 1%), NZ First 1% (down 0.5%), Progressive Party 0.5% (unchanged) and Others 0.5% (down 0.5%).

Oh dear.
