The Herald reports that:
National has hit its highest rating – 51.3 per cent – in a Herald-DigiPoll survey.
Translated to votes, that would mean the party could govern alone.
Labour has slipped to 13.2 points behind National, increasing last month’s 12.4-point gap…
Helen Clark is still well ahead of Mr Key as preferred prime minister, favoured by 48.7 per cent (down 2.1) to Mr Key’s 36.7 per cent (down 0.6).
Translated to seats, and assuming party leaders with seats retain them, the poll results would give National 65 seats in a 121-seat Parliament, Labour 49, the Maori Party 4 and Jim Anderton’s Progressives, Rodney Hide’s Act and Peter Dunne’s United Future would have one each.
