Hide Takes Votes From National

Rodney Hide's willingness to take up the opposition mantle on Winston Peters has been rewarded according to tonight's Roy Morgan poll. The news isn't good for Labour as they are still down the dunny, but National has suffered a 4.5% drop in support. ACT has shot from 0.5% to 2.5% in this poll. More than enough support to see Sir Roger (Douglas nor Bhatnagar) back into Parliament.

National might like to reflect on this result (which we think is a bit rogue - inconsistent with our own polling in the same period).
