Labour’s lurch to left poaches votes from Greens

The latest One News Colmar Brunton poll has shows little change for Labour in spite of having saturation media attention during its leadership contest.

Its support went up only 1% to 34%. National’s support also increased by 1% to 47%.

But Labour’s biggest potential coalition partner the Green Party dropped 2% to 12.

That won’t be surprising to anyone who paid attention to the leadership race which signalled a lurch to the left in Labour.

Any votes that attracted were most likely to be poached from the Greens and the policies which moved people from green to red were least likely to woo people in the centre.
