No Labour gains from Hager book - poll

7:50 am on 4 September 2014

The latest TV3-Reid election polls shows Labour has not made any gains on National since the release of the Dirty Politics book.

Dirty Politics was released by Nicky Hager in August and is based on thousands of emails and Facebook messages revealing a right-wing blogger's conversations with National Party members.

Despite the revelations in the book National is leading the way at 46.4 percent up 1.4 points, and almost 26 percent of voters would tick Labour on their ballot box - down 0.5 of a point - and the Greens are at 12.6 per cent.

John Key is still the preferred Prime Minister at 45.1 up nearly 4 points and David Cunliffe would be the pick for 11.4 percent of voters.

And National remains well out in front in the latest POLL of POLLS, calculated by political analyst Colin James for Radio New Zealand.


National 47.5

Labour 26

Greens 13

NZ First 5.7

Conservatives 3.6

Internet Mana 2.1

Maori 1

ACT 0.6

United Future 0.2
