The TV3 poll last night though has National closing a 3% gap to a 1% gap. And the Preferred PM gap closes from 23% to 16%.
When you are neck and neck in the polls, you don’t change course, and the Herald on Sunday makes clear they are not going to over-react to just one bad week.
The real issue is going to be the lack of tax relief in the budget this week!
