Latest Roy Morgan poll is out


As I have blogged previously I usually don’t blog about the Roy  Morgan poll. Mainly because it is so erratic.

However since it is the only public poll until the end of August and the only poll taken during Labour’s man-ban debacle it is pertinent to discuss it.

As I have said previously we need to take these polls with a grain of salt, but I did mention that if labour went up then David Shearer might just survive, but on the flip side if they went down then it is yet another indicator of the failings of his leadership.

Unfortunately though the left wing have wedded themselves to Roy Morgan and clutch to its coat-tails and read the entrails each and every time it comes out. I wonder what they are reading in the omens this time.  

Today’s New Zealand Roy Morgan Poll shows a small rise in support for Prime Minister John Key’s National Party to 47% (up 0.5% since June 17-30, 2013). Support for Key’s Coalition partners has changed little with the Maori Party 2% (up 0.5%), ACT NZ 0.5% (up 0.5%) and United Future 0% (down 0.5%).

Support for Labour is 31% (down 0.5%); Greens are 11.5% (down 1.5%), New Zealand First 4.5% (up 1%), Mana Party 1.5% (up 1%), Conservative Party of NZ 1.5% (down 0.5%) and Others 0.5% (down 0.5%).

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.
