Media Release – For Immediate Release

Stuff.co.nz / Ipsos poll sees John Key survive the Collins crisis

Despite a difficult week for National, the latest stuff.co.nz / Ipsos political poll shows support for the National Party up to 54.2%. John Key as preferred PM has also increased to 51.7%. Both results show that support for National remains steady despite the recent turbulence.

Labour support has declined slightly to 24.3% with David Cunliffe holding at 15.8% as preferred PM. Minor party support has remained unchanged with no party showing significant movement. Undecideds remain steady at 13%.

"This poll follows the first leaders debate and straddles the resignation of Judith Collins. Despite a difficult week for National, the latest stuff.co.nz / Ipsos poll shows support for the National Party up to 54.2%, while Labour support has declined slightly. Results show that support for National remains steady."
says Matt Benson, Managing Director - Public Affairs Ipsos, Wellington.

Stuff.co.nz works with market research partner Ipsos to canvas around 1000 New Zealanders about their voting intentions and how they feel about the key issues facing the country.

This gives a representative view of voting sentiment with results released on stuff.co.nz and across Fairfax newspapers around the country. The stuff.co.nz / Ipsos political poll is established as one of the country’s most respected barometers of political sentiment.

Full results are published on http://www.stuff.co.nz/interactives/polling/.

The stuff.co.nz / Ipsos political poll was conducted by telephone between August 30 and September 3 with a total sample of 1,009 people. It has a maximum margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 per cent.

Party Vote percentages are only based on the 819 eligible and decided voters. Excluded from Party Vote are the 19% per cent of the sample who are undecided, do not intend to vote or are ineligible to do so.
