One News poll: No good news for Labour, not much more for Shearer

No wonder One News went early with the Preferred PM results. They are the only good news, if a 1% increase can at all be considered good news, for Labour.

Despite a perfect week for Labour and all the fuss over the GCSB bill Labour couldn’t even improve their rankings a single percentage point.

Not so the Greens they surged 5 %


The Nats are down 3, but still sitting on 46%.



Labour should not be happy at this. Despite a perfect political storm, aided and abetted by a compliant media intent on being the opposition Labour has failed to fire.

Something is going to have to change. A measly 1% lift in Shearer’s pathetic numbers is their sole positive from this poll.

Add this poll to the so far ignored Roy Morgan poll and Labour is in dreadful trouble.

If they can’t get a decent hit on the government even after all the negative publicity of the past several weeks and the launch of their supposed circuit breaker housing policy then it is as plain as the noses on their faces that people aren;t listening to either David Shearer or to the Labour party in general.

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.  And 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 that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
