Whale v. Duck = Increase in Labours poll ratings

Perhaps the big idea of Labour’s political cripple campaign manager, a cycle race is now paying dividends for Labour.

The latest Roy Morgan poll has a big jump for Labour. And aren’t they all happy about it.

The latest New Zealand Roy Morgan Poll shows support for Prime Minister John Key’s National-led Government is at 53.5% (down 4%). Support for Key’s National Party is 49% (down 4%), the Maori Party 2.5% (up 0.5%), ACT NZ 1.5% (down 0.5%) and United Future 0.5% (unchanged).

Support for Opposition Parties is at 46.5% (up 4%) — Labour Party 36% (up 8%), Greens 6.5%, (down 3.5%), New Zealand First 2.5% (down 0.5%), Progressive Party 0% (down 0.5%) and Others 1.5% (up 0.5%).

Labour haven’t proposed anything, haven’t done anything and so the only bit of news that is making headlines for them the Whale vs. Duck race. Oh and of course the fact that everytime Phil Goff goes away or is out of the spotlight Labour’s poll ratings increase.
