Roy Morgan Poll

The latest Roy Morgan Poll is out. The poll continues to be up and down like whore’s drawers.

Today’s New Zealand Roy Morgan Poll shows a fall in support for Prime Minister John Key’s National Party to 44% (down 2% since late January). Support for Key’s Coalition partners shows the Maori Party 0.5% (down 1%), ACT NZ 0.5% (unchanged) and United Future 0% (unchanged). 

Support for Labour is 34.5% (up 3%); Greens are 13.5% (unchanged), New Zealand First 4% (down 1.5%), Mana Party 0.5% (unchanged), Conservative Party of NZ 2% (up 1.5%) and Others 0.5% (unchanged).

If a National Election were held today this New Zealand Roy Morgan Poll shows that Labour and the Greens with some minor Party support would win the Election.

    God save us all from the looneys, scarey these retards could ever get hold of the treasury benches.

  • thor42

    This is why I want to see John Ansell get a political party up and running ASAP. I reckon he could get 5% of the vote running on an “axe Treaty laws / one law for all” ticket.

    • Morgy

      I think you are right Thor however to get that in place with credibility will be tough given our MSM. The message needs to be very clear, very strong and with bucket loads of straight talking commonsense to cut through. Otherwise it would be destined to be another ‘nutbar’ redneck party with no hope.

      • StupidDiscus

        Arm the Cops. Stop benefits. End teacher unionsim & state schools.

        Conservative Party Policy. What’s not to like?

        (Oh yeah: actual Christians)

        • Meg

          Another stunningly stupid post from the aptly named member.

        • Mr_Blobby

          You forgot arming the general population and unambiguous self defense laws.

    • Changeiscoming

      Pretty sure the one law for all policy is Conservative Party policy

      • Apolonia

        This poll is a good result for the Conservatives up 1.5%, and still NZ’s 5th most popular party. Same result as the 2011 election.

        • StupidDiscus


          So anyone who talks about a nonexistent John Ansell get a political party up and running or ACT, or any other right party is – to put it simply – a traitor.

  • Mr_Blobby

    Good result given the lack of any effective opposition.

    The sheer volume of people reliant on the Government for a wage or benefit, voting in there own self interest IE the party that will not take away there entitlements.

    Means you may win the odd battle but the war has already been lost. Join the pay no tax revolution and sign up for your entitlements before they become unaffordable.

    • StupidDiscus

      the party that will not take away there entitlements

      National you mean. Note that Labour’s policy is to remove some “entitlement” to the codger-dole – eventually. That’s one policy more than National to remove actual entitlement.

      • Mr_Blobby

        National is currently sitting left of Labor. It is the only chance they have of getting re elected.

  • Meg

    Good to see the polls consisently showing it will be very hard if not impossible for National to be the government after 2014.

    • thor42

      So – the reason that you support discredited leftwing policy is………… ?
      Rightwing economic policies are the only ones that work. Kiwiblog had a very good article on Sweden’s recent economic transformation – purely due to it adopting rightwing policies.

      Leftwing economic policies give you Greece.
      Is that what you want?

      • Meg

        Given it was right wing free market, make money as fast as possible ideals that crashed the western world, I am happy at the prospect of a Labour government. And there is more to picking which party you vote for than their economic policy.

        • thor42

          No Meg, it *wasn’t* that which “crashed the Western world”. It was the stupid throw-money-around leftwing policies of Greece.

          • Meg

            Yea, because John Key is doing such a bang up job…. not. Borrowing like drunken sailors, raising taxes to eek out a tiny tiny surplus, flogging off state assets to make up for the billions it has lost. Jobs going, people leaving…. yep. Top job John.

          • StupidDiscus

            we did not end up like Greece

            We did end up like Greece – and without a shared currency with a big country to bail us out. We’re “surviving” only because we’re so small no-one has noticed what a big hole we’re in.

            Once they do, can you say “Argentina 1999”. Sure you can!

          • Meg

            Ummm, no we did not end up like Greece. Not by a long long shot.

            If you think otherwise then you are not really living in the real world or taking note of what is actually happening.

            Although that would explain your political leanings.

          • Sponge

            You have got to be fucking joking….

          • StupidDiscus

            How come the economies of places like Sweden, NZ and Australia are almost untouched by the crisis?


            NZ & Sweden – and now Aussie thanks to Gillard – are essentially bankrupt and surviving only on borrowed money. Same as the rest of the Welfare West.

          • Mr_Blobby

            What planet are you from fool. The only reason we are untouched is because we have borrowed a staggering amount of money to cover the deficits we have been running since National got into power.

            At some stage it will have to be paid back one way or the other, this won’t happen until we can borrow and tax no more, because it is easier to kick the can down the road than to face up to reality.

        • Hazards001

          You’re happy at a liarbour govt because you will get to keep your job as an under performing school teacher, as for this load of bullshit…” And there is more to picking which party you vote for than their economic policy.”
          What a load of horse feathers. Most people vote with their own self interests at heart, hence why we are stuck with WFF and no interest student loans. Personally as I’ve told you before I should be a labour voter but I see a bigger picture. And as I work hard…unlike you I’m penalised under your regime anyway!

          • Meg

            When you can actually get a hold on reality please come back and we can chat.

  • LesleyNZ

    No wonder the Greens love MMP. Certainly not democratic.

  • StupidDiscus

    National Party to 44% (down 2% since late January)

    Conservative Party of NZ 2%

    So: when will your hatred of actual Christians end?

    Doctrinaire leftertarianism has far too much hold over what remains of the Right in NZ.

  • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

    Well Tories – this is the last nail in the coffin. Emperor can now start to look for new jobs. This is what I have been telling for a long time. The only good news is Winnie the Poo is down below 5%. That gives Emperor a ray of hope. However, I feel Sheep with his innovative policies and decisive leadership is winning over the minds of Kiwis, while Emperor is not doing anything earth shattering.

    • StupidDiscus

      As Hooten said on Monday – Smiling Shearer has now assassinated more members of his caucus than the “Smiling Assassin” – really “Smile & Wave the State House Kid” – ever managed.

      And at least Cullen didn’t live in a state house

      • Sponge

        Well I wish he had rather than spoiling the reputation of my school.

        • StupidDiscus

          That’s as maybe, but Key certainly proves that “you can take the boy out of the state house, but not the state house out of the boy”.

          Remember that – overall – Cullen actually cut more tax than Key (or English) have managed; and that Labour’s proposed policies will cut more benefits than National has done.

          • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

            If you think Cullen cut taxes, not sure where you live….

    • Patrick

      Winnie will have something up his sleeve – bashing Chinese immigrants, snide remarks about National electoral funding etc etc – he has a well worn playbook ready to go. He is a dab hand at fermenting kak come election time.

  • Sir Cullen’s Sidekick

    Tomorrow I will be in a breakfast meeting with Sheep, Norman, poo and Hone to finalise 2014 cabinet positions. We have so much talent to select from. Now that Pornsy Jonesy has been cleared, our Maori Affairs Minister is sorted out. I will be recommending Hone be Social Welfare Minister and Winnie gets the plum Foreign Affairs Minister. Exciting times ahead under Sheep’s leadership. Bye bye Johnny boy! Enjoy your last two years.

    • StupidDiscus

      Winnie did fine last time around – well at least when he was out of the country…
