Roy Morgan Poll Oct 24 - Nov6: Nat 53% Lab 26%

[Full results and report: 4719_NZ_Fed_Vote_Nov_2011.pdf]


The latest New Zealand Roy Morgan Poll shows support for Prime Minister John Key’s National-led Government has fallen to 56% (down 1.5%). Support for Key’s National Party is 53% (down 0.5%), ACT NZ 1% (unchanged), the Maori Party 2% (unchanged), and United Future 0% (down 1%).

Support for Opposition Parties is at 44% (up 1.5%) – Labour Party 26% (down 3.5%), Greens 12% (up 2.5%), New Zealand First 4.5% (up 2%), Mana Party 1% (up 0.5%) and Others 0.5% (unchanged). If a National Election were held today the National Party would easily be returned to Government.

The latest New Zealand Roy Morgan Government Confidence Rating has fallen 5.5 points to 131 – with 58.5% (down 2.5%) of New Zealanders saying New Zealand is ‘heading in the right direction’ compared to 27.5% (up 3%) that say New Zealand is ‘heading in the wrong direction.’ Gary Morgan says: “Today’s New Zealand Roy Morgan Poll shows another slight drop in support for the National-led Government of John Key (56%, down 1.5%) but with the Government still holding an election winning lead over the Opposition Parties (44%, up 1.5%).

“Although National support has dropped to 53% (down 0.5%), the main beneficiary has not been the main Opposition Labour Party (26%, down 3.5%), but minor parties the Greens (12%, up 2.5%) and New Zealand First (4.5%, up 2%). This is the highest Greens vote ever recorded by the New Zealand Roy Morgan Poll and is significantly higher than the 6.72% the Greens polled at the 2008 New Zealand Election at which they won 9 seats."

Electors were asked: “If a New Zealand Election were held today which party would receive your party vote?"

This latest New Zealand Roy Morgan Poll on voting intention was conducted by telephone with a NZ wide crosssection of 911 electors from October 24 – November 6, 2011. Of all electors surveyed 7% (up 0.5%) didn’t name a party.

Gordon Campbell: On National’s Ongoing Problems With Abortion

Despite Christopher Luxon’s assurances to the contrary, there is no such thing as “settled law” in New Zealand. Apart from the six provisions that are constitutionally entrenched, legislation can always be amended or overturned by a simple majority vote within our single chamber of Parliament. Luxon’s repeated use of the term “settled law” has been particularly tone deaf, given that several of the US Supreme Court justices used that very same term during their confirmation hearings...
