Labour’s favourite poll shows they are below 30% in that too

David Cunliffe’s days are numbered for sure. Instead of turning around Labour’s fortunes, he has tanked them.

The latest Roy Morgan, the dodgiest of all polls, but nonetheless Labour’s favourite, shows them slipping further below the morale sapping 30%.

Today?s New Zealand Roy Morgan Poll shows a fall in support for National (49.5%, down 3%) but National are still well ahead of a potential Labour/Greens alliance (40%, up 2%).

Support for Key?s Coalition partners has fallen slightly with the Maori Party 1% (down 0.5%), Act NZ (0.5%, down 0.5%) and United Future 0% (unchanged).

Support for the Labour Party is down 1% to 28%, the Greens are up 3% to 12%, New Zealand First is 4% (down 0.5%) and the Mana Party 1.5% (up 1%). Mana Party alliance partners the Internet Party are at 1% (up 0.5%) ? a combined 2.5% for the two parties while support for the Conservative Party of NZ is 1.5% (up 0.5%) and support for Independent/ Others is 1% (up 0.5%).

If a National Election were held now the latest New Zealand Roy Morgan Poll shows that the result would be an easy victory for the National Party and a third term for Prime Minister John Key.

The latest NZ Roy Morgan Government Confidence Rating is virtually unchanged ? down 1pt to 139.5pts with 63.5% (down 1%) of New Zealanders saying New Zealand is ?heading in the right direction? compared to 24% (unchanged) that say New Zealand is ?heading in the wrong direction?.

Labour are now much lower in the polls since David Cunliffe took over from David Shearer. It must surely be time for them to look at the “Moore Option” in order to save seats and MPs as they slide into electoral irrelevance.

Any heading off a coup ?by “the scabs” will now be rekindled after two devastating polls in a day…the question is though will they pick the?scab?on this one?
