First poll of New Year, rush on BBQs in Labour areas

The first Roy Morgan poll is out for the year and David Shearer is not off to a good start. February caucus vote is looming large and there are still a few weekends for some good solid lobbying around the BBQ.

Today’s New Zealand Roy Morgan Poll shows steady support for Prime Minister John Key’s National Party at 46% (up 0.5% since mid December 2012). Support for Key’s Coalition partners shows the Maori Party 2% (up 0.5%), ACT NZ 0.5% (down 0.5%) and United Future 0.5% (up 0.5%).

Support for Labour is 31.5% (down 2%); Greens are 12% (up 1%), New Zealand First 5% (unchanged), Mana Party 0.5% (down 0.5%), Conservative Party of NZ 1.5% (up 0.5%) and Others 0.5% (unchanged).

If a National Election were held today this NZ Roy Morgan Poll says the result would be too close to call.
