Labour maintains their lead over National…

Labour has a 14 point lead over National in Party Vote support. On party support alone this would translate to 62 seats in Parliament and Labour would be able to govern alone. If Peter Dunne and Jim Anderton win their Electorate seats, then Labour would still retain overall control with Mr Anderton’s support.

Helen Clark retains a 35% preferred Prime Minister rating, a figure she has not been below since October 2001. Almost two thirds of the people interviewed said they thought she was performing well in her role. This compares to just under a third saying Don Brash is performing well as leader of the National Party in opposition.

Preference for Don Brash as Prime Minister has fallen to 16%, just 5 points ahead of Winston Peters, and 11 points down on his peak level of support in March this year.

Movements in opinions for Don Brash since March:

Image --|-- Movement Points
Capable Leader --|-- down 14
Has a lot of personality --|-- down 12
Good in a crisis --|-- down 9
Sound judgement --|-- down 8
Down to earth --|-- down 8
Understands the economic problems for NZ --|-- down 7
Talks down to people --|-- up 9
Rather narrow minded --|-- up 8
Out of touch with ordinary people --|-- up 11
