In the latest edition:

Rolling poll - It's a cliffhanger

National went within a breath of claiming the lead in our rolling poll of polls after this week’s New Zealand Herald Digipoll gave them a four point lead over Labour. Today’s NBR poll will put National in front.

NZ First continues its steady climb towards 10 per cent and is on the cusp of being a mandatory part of any Government. The Greens are holding above 5 per cent - just – although the polls seem to wildly vary for them between 3-4 per cent at one end and 6-8 per cent at the other. Given their strong youth vote we suspect a methodological cause. Are all the polls picking up the time when the young are most likely to pick up the phone? Or weighting cellphone calls enough? Or at all?


We’ve added a little colour and kept your edition easy to read on screen.


The OECD checks out the NZ economy. There’s something in it for everyone: we get a thumbs up and a few suggestions to do better.


The Herald sexes up its Lions coverage.

The Lobby Edition is a complimentary, condensed edition of the paid-subscription only Governor’s Edition published last Tuesday.
