Roy Morgan Poll: 15 August 2008

Whatever Labour has tried to do to peg back the polls it isnt working. National lead with a consistent large margin.

Looks like it is plan b for Labour-give everyone $10000.00 if they vote for them.


Finding No. 4314 - Latest New Zealand Morgan Poll for mid August conducted with 834 New Zealand electors over the period of July 28 - August 10.: August 15, 2008

In mid August 2008 the New Zealand Roy Morgan Poll shows National Party support at 48% (up 0.5%) still well ahead of the Labour Party 34% (up 1.5%), if an election were held now the National Party would win.

Support for the Greens was 7.5% (down 0.5%), NZ First 6.5% (up 1.5%), Maori Party 2% (down 1%), ACT NZ 1.5% (down 1%) and Others 0.5% (down 0.5%).

The Roy Morgan Government Confidence Rating has risen for the second New Zealand Morgan Poll in a row, rising strongly to 103.5 (up 12pts). It is now at its highest level since being at 104.5 in early May. Now more New Zealanders 44.5% (up 6%) say the country is “heading in the right direction” compared to 41% (down 6%) that say the country is “heading in the wrong direction.”
There has been a similar rise in the Roy Morgan New Zealand Consumer Confidence Rating which has also strengthened, up 7.1 points to 94.9, and up 12.9 points since early July.

Gary Morgan says:

“Support for Helen Clark’s Government remains weak, although the National Party has lost the momentum it has held for much of the year.

“Revelations of a ‘secret agenda’ revealed by bugging at the recent National Party Conference have led voters to re-evaluate what the National Party is actually offering New Zealanders.

“If the vote continues to tighten New Zealanders can look forward to a Coalition Government perhaps comprising the Greens or New Zealand First.”

Electors were asked: “If an election were held today which party would receive your party vote?”

This latest Morgan Poll on voting intention was conducted by telephone with a New Zealand-wide cross-section of 836 electors from July 28 - August 10, 2008.
