TV3 says LabourGreen are closing the gap on National:
National remains on top, with 47.3 percent – down 2.3 percent. Labour goes up to 33.1 percent; that’s up 2.9 percent. The Greens are up a tad, at 12 percent.
New Zealand First drop to 2.2 percent, beneath the 5 percent threshold required for leader Winston Peters to get back. . .
National has jumped six points and is sitting pretty on 49 percent.
Labour has dropped three points, now at 33 percent.
The Greens have lost a big chunk of support, now in single digits on nine percent, while New Zealand First picked up a point to be on four percent. . .
Both polls are close enough to each other and both show that National is still fairly close to the support it got in the 2011 election which is an amazing feat given the natural and financial challenges the government has had to tackle.
But polls aren’t elections and there’s still nearly a year and a half until the next one.
