Another Rogue Poll

Yet another rogue poll, they have been rolling in for over three years, but I suppose we will hear Labour and its paid lap-bloggers intone in steely voices that this is just another rogue poll and the electorate will be surprised by John Key’s hidden agenda and Crosby/Textor, Tory baby eating persona will finally reveal itself.

The latest Roy Morgan NZ Poll shows support for John Key’s National-led Government is virtually unchanged, down 0.5% to 57% comprising National Party 51.5% (down 2%), Maori Party 2% (down 0.5%), ACT NZ 2.5% (up 1%) and United Future 1% (up 1%). Support for Opposition Parties is 43% (up 0.5%); Labour Party 33.5% (up 2%), Greens 6.5% (down 1.5%), New Zealand First 2% (unchanged), the Progressive Party 0.5% (unchanged) and Others 0.5% (unchanged). If a National Election were held today the National Party would win easily. The Roy Morgan Government Confidence Rating is 137 (down 3.5 points) with 64% (down 1%) of New Zealanders saying New Zealand is ‘heading in the right direction’ compared to 27% (up 2.5%) that say New Zealand is ‘heading in the wrong

    It looks like the ill fated but ongoing coup to replace Hide with Heather Roy have been paying off with Acts polling already.

    It cannot be anything else because Rodders is dog shit over the super city.

    I see Tiger is still trying to push the Act split .. I say that no Rodney, no ACT and that could be a worry for National
