At 60 percent in tonight's poll, National's rating is the highest ever recorded by 3News.
So we asked voters what they thought of Key and National's performance over the first three months in Government.
64 percent say it has been strong or very strong.
Just 4 percent say has been weak.
In the crucial leadership traits, 85 percent consider Key a capable leader - that has rocketed up.
75 percent say he would be good in a crisis, up significantly.
And 77 percent back his judgement. TV3.co.nz
The only question that still remains is just how long Goff can remain as the Labour leader?
Not long judging by his non-performance thus far.
The Labour knives are being sharpened as we speak.
