Public Polls December 2016

Note only one poll in December, so the average is of Roy Morgan only.

The monthly newsletter summary is:

Curia’s Polling Newsletter – Issue 104, December 2016

There was only one political voting poll in December 2016 – a Roy Morgan. This means the monthly average reflects that poll only. 

The average of the public polls sees National 17% ahead of Labour in December, down 7% from November.

 The current seat projection is centre-right 57 seats, centre-left 53 which would see NZ First hold the balance of power.

We show the current New Zealand poll averages for party vote, country direction and preferred PM compared to three months ago, a year ago, three years ago and nine years ago. This allows easy comparisons between terms and Governments.

In the United States just before he is sworn in at the 45th President, Trump has a negative 6% favourability. No other recent President-Elect has had a negative favourability rating before they took office.

 In the UK Jeremy Corbyn’s net approval rating continues to plummet, now hitting -43%.

In Australia Pauline Hanson’s One Nation party is rising in the polls.

In Canada after a series of gaffes such as his praise for Fidel Castro, PM Trudeau’s approval rating has dropped by 14%, but is still a relatively strong +12%.

We also carry details of polls on National’s leadership, when the summer holidays should be plus the normal business and consumer confidence polls.
