National down in the polls - turning green...

Support for National down:

Support for National has taken a hit in the latest Colmar Brunton poll..

It's survey of over a thousand voters shows support for the National Party's dipped four points from last December to 51 per cent.

However its loss has been the Green Party's - and not Labour's - gain.

The Greens are up three and a half points to eight percent while Labour remains static on 33 per cent support.

The other mover is New Zealand First.

Its support has been increasing since August and is now at 3.6 six per cent, a half point rise since Christmas.

KR says:

NZ First received 4.5% at the last elections - they are nearly there again 9 mths out!

I don't think Labour is too concerned that the Greens have taken back some of their election vote. Labour has not lost any support. Labour will take seats from the Maori Party and South Island general electorate seats. Act will lose their only seat and into oblivion! Peter Dunne could also lose his seat to Labour. National is nearly gone already on paper. Add Anne Tolley to that list too!  And Labour still attracts a majority of potential  Maori voters.

National is losing the key to power!

Hi Peter,
It is always interesting to know the political situation in your country.
I think the political games there are not "dirty".
