Roy Morgan poll shows Budget well received

The Budget has been received well with a slight blip in support for National while Phil Goff’s floundering labour party and their goofynomics alternative have suffered yet another slide in popularity. The latest Roy Morgan poll is out and it isn’t good reading for Labour or for the prospects of the pro tem leader Phil Goff.

They are getting closer and closer to falling under 30%. Note to Gary Morgan please stop showing NZ First, they are no longer in parliament and are therefore irrelevant.

In early June support for John Key’s Coalition Government is 57.5% (up 0.5%) comprising National Party support 52% (unchanged), Maori Party 3% (up 0.5%), ACT NZ 2% (unchanged), and United Future 0.5% (unchanged) according to the Roy Morgan New Zealand Poll conducted May 4-17, 2009.

Support for Opposition parties is 42.5% (down 0.5%) – Labour Party support is 31% (down 0.5%), Greens 8.5% (down 1%), NZ First 1.5% (up 0.5%), Progressive Party 0.5% (unchanged) and Others 1% (up 0.5%).
