The latest Roy Morgan opinion poll result is out. Taking the numbers at their face value and ignoring the margin of error suggests that National is up 3% to 45.5% although half of this came from its allies and from the Conservative Party.
Labour is up 3.5% to 29.5%. Andrew Little and the team will be pleased. The greens are down 2.5% to 12% and New Zealand First are down 3% to 9.5%.
The last poll was a shocker for National. This one has bounced back although general confidence was also up and this is normally good news for the Government. Winston is still the king maker and Labour + Greens are improving.
Since the last election the right vote block (National+Act+UF+Conservative+Maori Party) has gone from 53.24% to 48% on these votes. The Left (Labour+Green+Internet Mana) has increased from 37.25% to 41.5% on these figures.
