Despite all the media attack, Labour soars in the latest internal polling…
LABOUR – 46%
NATIONAL – 22%
ACT – 16%
GREENS – 7%
NZF – 3.8%
Maori Party – 1.9%
This runs counter to the narrative that there has been a serious swing away from Labour over it’s handling of Delta.
The majority of people support the Government and trust them to handle this. Yes it’s angering but people blame the virus, not Jacinda.
The big story is ACT continuing to cannibalise National vote and the continued death spiral of the National Party.
I predict ACT will overtake National during the foolish Hate Speech debate next year.
This polarization of the extreme right gaining such political dominance isn’t registering yet. The idea of a Seymour-Collins Government will terrify the middle into sticking with Labour in 2023 and helping win Jacinda a 3rd term, but the polarization of debate between the yawning chasm of ACT and Labour/Green will cause enormous friction for 2026.
