National Still At 50% in One New Poll

Are we going to have a repeat of 1951? That was tha last time a party achieved 50% of the vote. One News' poll tonight is suggesting that the barrier can be breached again.

The TV One Colmar Brunton poll released tonight shows National down one point to 50 per cent support and Labour up three points to 36 per cent.
The gap was 14 points compared with 18 a week ago.
On 50 per cent support National would have 61 seats in Parliament and Labour 44.
There was little change in support for the minor parties, although the Greens were down slightly and would gain seven seats instead of the 10 they would have had a week ago.
