Last month Labour released results of its own polling to show it was doing better than public polls.
There’s been no release of its own since the 1 News Colmar Brunton poll:
Since the last poll in late May, Mr Little has dropped to fourth behind Bill English, Winston Peters and deputy Labour leader Jacinda Ardern.
Mr Little’s popularity fell by three points to five per cent while Mr Peters jumped four points to 11 per cent.
It’s the lowest result for a leader of the opposition since 2009. . .
National dropped two points to 47 per cent, while Labour dropped three points to 27 per cent.
The Green Party and New Zealand First are both up two points to 11 per cent.
The Maori Party is up one point to 2 per cent and The Opportunities Party is steady on 1 per cent. . .
This isn’t an optimal poll for National but it’s far worse for Labour which would only get to 61 seats in a 122 seat parliament with the Green Party and NZ First.
It would only get a majority with Maori Party support as well and that wouldn’t be a recipe for the political equivalent of happy families.
This is only one poll but it continues the trend of low levels of support for Labour and its leader.
That the party hasn’t released its own polling suggests that those results are at least as dismal for it.
