From The Herald summary:
National’s support fell one point to 48 per cent, while Labour remained on 31 per cent and Greens rose one point to 10 per cent.
I’ll cautiously call the previous Roy Morgan, which caused so much angst, an outlier.
The poll was also the first by One News since Mr Key was accused of harassing an Auckland waitress by repeatedly pulling her ponytail. It appeared to show that his popularity has not dropped as a result of the incident, which generated headlines around the world and could lead to legal action against him.
In the preferred Prime Minister poll, John Key rose 2 points to 44 per cent. Leader of the Opposition Andrew Little’s support fell two points to 9 per cent, and he was now level in the popularity stakes with New Zealand First leader Winston Peters.
Without any headline news to work with, the Nat’s chief spinster DPF was working Twitter last night on those leadership numbers. Note that fewer than half of those polled prefer our supposedly “popular” PM. But as that same DPF once said “The preferred PM question means little (except to party leaders).” (Link courtesy of the Wayback Machine, as Farrar seems to be deleting old comments?)
