The latest TV3 TNS poll for November 6 2008 shows a collapse of Labour support, from over 37% in the last TNS poll to 33% in today's poll.
Labour's vote collapses to just over 33. It is being punished for president Mike Williams’ failed trip to Melbourne to dig up dirt on John Key.
The Greens are coasting at 9 percent - the highest ever result in a 3 News poll.
New Zealand First is on 3.4 percent – and facing oblivion on Saturday.
ACT has received a last minute boost - 2.8 - that would see Roger Douglas in parliament.
The Maori Party is on 2.7 – and is expected to win at least four seats - most likely five.
Jim Anderton's Progressives and United Future's Peter Dunne are off the pace - but will win their seats.
In parliament, 62 seats are needed to govern - National has 59, ACT four, and Peter Dunne one - that's 64 and John Key is running the country.
Across in opposition, Labour has just 42 seats, the Greens 12, Jim Anderton one - add in the Maori Party - and even then they fail to govern, with 59 seats. More
Today's TV One Colmar Brunton poll has a similar lead to National-just differing by 1 point- but with slightly different figures.
TV3 has been the odd one out in polls wildly swinging so its similarity with the Colmar poll confirms the trend of a healthy lead for National.
There will be 3 more polls out tomorrow. Fairfax Nielson, NZ Herald Digipoll and Roy Morgan.
