After the Roy Morgan rogue, normal service has been resumed. The alliance between Labour and the Greens continues to gain traction and the third term blues have clearly set in for DunnoKeyo.
The Newshub-Reid Research poll has the Nats on 45.1 percent, a drop of 1.9 percent. Labour/Green has gained most of that, jumping 1.8 percent up to 44.2 percent. NZ First are on 8%, so no show without Winnie.
Labour leader Andrew Little reckons the result is because people realise National haven’t got a handle on the housing crisis.
“People can’t get a decent house, can’t even rent a house and they’re saying, this government’s run out of answers. And they’re looking to parties that do have a comprehensive plan” .
Greens co-leader Metiria Turei agrees:
“New Zealanders are right. National is failing us when it comes to housing. They have no new ideas, they won’t build more houses, they’re not taking the crisis seriously.
“New Zealand families deserve better.”
The two party tie up is working out beautifully. Good job, Labour. Good job, Greens.
