Latest Roy Morgan poll shows Nats are still riding high despite screw ups in Northland

Rpy Morgan, the poll the left-wing love to quote is still showing the National party riding high.

Sure there are ups and downs, but National is consistently polling over 45%. Labour does manage to squeak up a point…but isn’t making any headway.

Today?s New Zealand Roy Morgan Poll shows National falling to 46.5% (down 2.5% since February). However, support has increased for Prime Minister John Key?s Coalition partners with the Maori Party 2% (up 1%) and Act NZ 1% (up 1%) although United Future is still on 0% (unchanged).?

Support for the main opposition Labour Party is at 31% (up 1% – their highest level of support for nearly a year since May 2014) but down for the Greens 11% (down 1%) while NZ First is 6% (unchanged). For the parties outside Parliament the Conservative Party of NZ is 1.5% (unchanged) while the Internet-Mana Party alliance is at 0% (unchanged) and support for Independent/ Others is 1% (up 0.5%).

If a National Election were held now the latest New Zealand Roy Morgan Poll shows that National would win in a close election.

I’m not sure NZ First would want to work with Labour who require the Greens. Winston Peters loathes them. With National and NZ First a majority government could be easily formed but for the mutual loathing between John Key and Winston Peters.
