Roy Morgan Poll

The latest Roy Morgan Poll is out. I don’t see much point in polls this early in the cycle, but there is some heart for Labour in the latest figures, they squeak over 30% again. The Right/Wrong direction stats are probably more relevant right now.

Today’s New Zealand Roy Morgan Poll shows continuing strong support for Prime Minister John Key’s National 46% (down 1% since January 3-15, 2012). Support for Key’s Coalition partners is virtually unchanged with the Maori Party 2% (up 0.5%), ACT NZ 0.5% (unchanged), and United Future 0.5% (unchanged). Support for Labour Party has increased 3% to 30.5%, Greens 13% (down 1.5%), New Zealand First 5.5% (up 0.5%), Mana Party 0.5% (down 0.5%) and Others 1.5% (down 0.5%). The latest New Zealand Roy Morgan Government Confidence Rating is up 0.5 points to 133 – with 61% (up 0.5%) of New Zealanders saying New Zealand is ‘heading in the right direction’ compared to 28% (unchanged) that say New Zealand is ‘heading in the wrong direction.’

    Someone mentioned participating in a phone poll last week – when asked what party they would vote for not all small parties were included in the prompt list, that must distort the results.

      Loose a motion of no confidence and youre out the next day. 
      What was national & co margin without  the MP again. 
       Was it ONE vote ? ( 59 +1 +1 out of 121)

  • Dunne and Banks are solid. Dunne hasn’t stirred the pot since he left Labour in ’94, and Banks knows he owes his political life to John Key (not to mention that he would never support Labour getting back into power). The reality is that the 61 may as well be a one-party majority.

    I’ll be following the Greens figures with interest. They will be the key to Labour getting into power again. It’ll be interesting to see if their support drops as more people wake up to the “manmade global warming” scam.
