Opinion Poll Results

9th to 15th June 2005

[SCOOP EDITOR'S NOTE: TV3 News’ TNS Poll has shown that if an election was held today, based on the poll’s findings, Labour and centre-left parties would not have the numbers to govern alone. The Poll shows New Zealand First on 11 percent with 14 MPs in Parliament. That would place its leader Winston Peters in the box seat to influence policy from either inside or outside a coalition. Centre-right parties would also have the numbers to govern.]
