Have published the monthly newsletter summarising the public polls. Labour’s trend continues. The executive summary is:
There were six political polls in July – two Roy Morgans, a One News Colmar Brunton, a 3 News Reid Research, a Herald DigiPoll and a Fairfax Ipsos.
The average of the public polls has National 25% ahead of Labour in July, up 2% from June and up 11% from April. The current seat projection is centre-right 68 seats, centre-left 52 which would see a centre-right Government.
In Australia Tony Abbott’s net approval rating has risen 14% in the wake of the shooting down of MH370.
In the United States the country direction falls to a massive net -40%.
In the UK David Cameron’s ratings are improving, as is the contry direction. Scottish independence polls show the no vote ahead by 5% to 14% with an average 9% gap.
In Canada the Liberals have opened up a large lead over the Conservatives, and would be able to form a minority government on current polls.
The normal two tables are provided comparing the country direction sentiment, head of government and opposition leader approval sentiment for the five countries.
We also carry details of polls in New Zealand on fat tax, health food ratings, school policies, the man apology, the Mana/Internet party plus the normal business and consumer confidence polls.
