National Lead Up In Roy Morgan Poll

Contrary to expectations, after a less than impressive two weeks, National has extended its lead over Labour according to the latest Roy Morgan poll. National is up 1.5 to 51%. Labour drops to 34%. The Greens and NZ First have also dropped.

Roy Morgan Research see a correlation with Consumer Confidence.

This is a major blow to Labour. They have tried everything over the period that this poll was taken. The public, however, seem to have made their minds up. What is not clear, is whether a change of leader will now make a difference.
