OneNews poll – National still in high 40s, no cut through for Cunliffe

Despite the spin of Labour about a UMR poll showing National in the 30s we now have a second reputable poll showing National is still riding high in the polls after 5 years.

Worse though is that David Cunliffe hasn’t made any gains at all.

The One News/Colmar Brunton poll shows:

National: 45%
Labour: 34%
Greens: 13%
NZ First: 4%
Maori: 1%
Act: 1%
Conservatives: 2%

John Key is still preferred PM by a big margin:

John Key: 43%
David Cunliffe: 12% 

Word on the tipline is that far from the spin of Labour their internal polling, done by UMR, is showing Shearer like numbers…no cut through at all.

Labour are now seriously considering sending a message too to Len Brown to stand down, his wall to wall coverage is like the coverage of dodgy ratbags for the ALP in NSW affecting Federal results.

Labour hugged Len hard and now his dodgy rooting behaviour seems to be not only taking all the headlines but also drowning out coverage for David Cunliffe.

National meanwhile has weathered the storm and seen off the mild lift in the polls from Cunliffe’s leadership challenge.

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.
