Another poll, another solid result for the Labour led Government.
The 1 News Colmar Brunton poll suggests a 2 party left government with a 6-8 seat majority.
LAB 45% (+2), GRN 6% (+1), NZF 3% (-1)
NAT 42% (-4), MAO 1%, ACT 1%, TOP 1%
However, history says NZ First will cross the 5% threshold, so Labour with the choice of either of the current coalition partners to govern looks possible. Of course, I’d expect Labour to carry the coalition on in that event, so No Change looks to be the winner.
Well, I suppose if one were charitable, at least Simon Bridges can say Judith Collins isn’t actually ahead in this poll. At 6% each, even combined they can’t dent Jacinda Ardern’s 44% rating.
Keep those attack ads coming, Tories.
They’re really going to make the difference.
