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.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. 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.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
