A couple of words of caution in interpreting these numbers. Profile makes up part of these results. The higher the profile the more people are likely to know you and like or dislike you.

In terms of preferred no one is over 20%. This reflects it is a very competitive race.

Also the favourability and net favourability ratings are important, but what is more important is what those scores would be from potential or actual National voters. They have not given that break down.
