Latest Roy Morgan

The latest Roy Morgan poll has been released. The poll was of 895 electors from June 27 – July 10, so before Labour’s Capital Gains tax announcement.

The latest New Zealand Roy Morgan Poll shows support for Prime Minister John Key’s National-led Government is at 55% (down 5%). Support for Key’s National Party is 49% (down 5%), ACT NZ 3% (up 0.5%), the Maori Party 2.5% (down 0.5%), and United Future 0.5% (unchanged).

Support for Opposition Parties is at 45% (up 5%) — Labour Party 33.5% (up 3%), Greens 7.5% (up 2%), New Zealand First 3% (down 0.5%) and Others 1% (up 0.5%).

If a National Election were held today the National Party would easily be returned to Government.

The poll was largely completed by the time preliminary details of Labour’s CGT policy had been released, and certainly well before the official release. The next Roy Morgan should so the real reaction to the tax.

Roy Morgan usually releases their poll the week after completion going by previous polls. They must have held it back because of the log jam of polls. If they are polling to schedule then they are in the field again right now and we should see another poll late next week.

When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
