The Dirty Politics Fallout

The Dirty Politics Fallout


Tonight’s 3News-Reid Research poll shows that the Conservative Party is on the verge of making it into the next Parliament, even without an electorate deal with National.

The poll, conducted in the week following the release of Nicky Hager’s Dirty Politics book, has the Conservatives on 4.6 per cent, tantalisingly close to the five per cent MMP threshold.

The poll has also asked for the public’s reaction on whether John Key should stand Judith Collins as a minister.

3News Political Editor Patrick Gower says:

“Tonight’s 3News-Reid Research poll shows Dirty Politics has given the political landscape a real good shake. Not only does it have the Conservatives nearly at five per cent – there are also significant results for some of the other parties.”

Without giving too much away – there really has been some fallout from the Dirty Politics saga. A lot of people have views on what John Key should do about Judith Collins. He hasn’t acted against her – we will give the public’s view on that.”

Full details of the poll will be on 3News at 6pm tonight, and on our website 3News.co.nz
