EFB starting to bite

[Roy Morgan Research] Morgan Poll

The effectives of the publicity over the Electoral Finance Bill are starting to bite. Just a week ago Labour lickspittles were crowing about Labour’s comeback in the polls, but wait the Herald launched its attack on the Electoral Finance Bill and lookee here the polls dramatically reverse.

Labour is on the brink of electoral oblivion but worse luck is the Bauble-ator has scratched and clawed his way back over 5%.

Labour down 6.5% to 34%
Nationals was up 3% to 48%
Green Party up 1% to 7.5%
New Zealand First was up 2% to 5.5%
Maori Party was up 1% to 2.5%
United Future New Zealand 1% (down 0.5%)
ACT New Zealand 1% (unchanged).

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

    The interesting thing about this poll is that it was conducted before the EFB march. I predict further dropping in the polls for Labour. Oh dear how sad never mind.
