In June support for New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s Labour Party was at 54.5% – down 2% since May, but still more than double the support for National on 27% (up only 0.5%) two months before the election in mid-September. If an election were held today Labour could govern without the help of either New Zealand First or the Greens. The large decline in support for National since being level with Labour on 40% in January prompted the Opposition to replace former leader Simon Bridges with Todd Muller in late May. The latest results for June show the change in leadership had a negligible impact on support for National and this week Muller resigned after less than two months in the job, citing health reasons. This New Zealand Roy Morgan Poll on voting intention was conducted by telephone – both landline and mobile – with a NZ wide cross-section of 879 electors during June. Of all electors surveyed 6% (up 0.5%) didn’t name a party.
