The Roy Morgan Poll out today shows the national juggernaut continues to steamroll Labour opposition.
This has continued a trend of polls since the 2008 election that have seen support for national remain at around or above 50% support - higher than their vote share for the 2009 election:
The latest New Zealand Roy Morgan Poll shows the Roy Morgan Government Confidence Rating has jumped 19 points to 133.5 with 59.5% (up 10%) of New Zealanders saying New Zealand is ‘heading in the right direction’ compared to 26% (down 9%) that say New Zealand is ‘heading in the wrong direction.’
At the same time support for John Key’s National-led Government is up 1% to 54.5%. Support for Prime Minister Key’s National Party is 52.5% (up 3.5%), the Maori Party 1.5% (down 1.5%), and ACT NZ 0.5% (down 1%).
Support for Opposition Parties is down 1% to 45.5% — Labour Party 32.5% (down 2.5%), Greens 8%, (unchanged), New Zealand First 4% (up 1%), Progressive Party 0.5% (up 0.5%) and others 0.5% (unchanged).
If a National Election were held today the National Party would easily be returned to Government.
