  1. Bill English 4.51
  2. John Key 4.04
  3. Steven Joyce 3.51
  4. Amy Adams 3.47
  5. Jacinda Ardern 3.37
  6. Nikki Kaye 3.36
  7. Paula Bennett 3.24
  8. Chris FInlayson 3.23
  9. James Shaw 3.21
  10. Jonathan Coleman 3.17
  11. Simon Bridges 3.12
  12. Annette King 3.10
  13. Anne Tolley 3.09
  14. Michael Woodhouse 3.06
  15. Phil Twyford 2.93 
  16. Nathan Guy 2.91
  17. Todd McClay 2.90
  18. Winston Peters 2.90
  19. Grant Robertson 2.86
  20. Judith Collins 2.85
  21. Hekia Parata 2.85
  22. Murray McCully 2.77
  23. David Shearer 2.72
  24. Gerry Brownlee 2.66
  25. David Parker 2.55
  26. Nick Smith 2.52
  27. Chris Hipkins 2.46
  28. Julie-Anne Genter 2.42
  29. Metiria Turei 2.37
  30. David Clark 2.35
  31. Maggie Barry 2.34
  32. Andrew Little 2.22
  33. Peseta Sam Lotu-Iiga 2.15
  34. Ron Mark 2.13

A few interesting things to note:

  • Andrew Little has a disastrous rating. He is seen as the least impressive Labour front bencher.
  • James Shaw is well regarded by CEOs. There has been some amusing exchanges on Twitter as Shaw has complained that this aspect has not been highlighted, and others have suggested it may not endear him to their base.
  • Ardern and King the only Labour MPs rated above a three
  • English and Key only MPs rated four or higher
  • National’s average rating is 3.03, Labour is 2.73

UPDATE: Ministers not in the online edition now included
