The latest One News Colmar Brunton poll has Labour dropping 5%, and behind National.
It is interesting to compare how this Government is doing compared to the previous one at the same time. How does April 2017 and April 2009 compare poll wise.
- Main governing party – 43% in 2017 and 57% in 2009
- Main opposition party – 44% in 2017 and 31% in 2009
- PM as Preferred PM – 37% in 2017 and 51% in 2009
- Opposition Leader as Preferred PM – 10% in 2017 and 6% in 2009
The poll was done up until the 11th of April so it doesn’t include the announcement that they want to kill off the entire NZ gas and oil industry. The next one might see a further drop!
