If there was a snap election tomorrow, 38 per cent of GPs would vote National and 36 per cent for Labour, the latest New Zealand Doctor / IMS Health Fax poll shows.
Labour’s comeback might be attributed to National’s ACC stance. The poll shows 83 per cent of GPS do not support a return to competition in the accident compensation market as proposed by National.
National is down from 63% in October 2007. While I’m sure they weren’t expecting to remain at those heady heights I suspect the extent of the drop, and what is now a close race with Labour will be of concern.
