National bleeding poll support…

The latest Roy Morgan poll has National continuing to fall in the polls.

The “dead cat bounce” previous rise – due mostly to redneck kneejerk reaction to Maori water claims – appears to have been only a temporary respite for this lame-duck administration.

The poll results,

National Party to 41.5% (down 2%) – 50 seats

Maori Party 1.5% (down 1%) – 3 seats?

ACT NZ 0.5% (unchanged)  – 1 seat?

United Future 0.5% (up 0.5%) – 1 seat?

Total National-led coalition-bloc:  55 seats (?)

Support for Labour is 33.5% (up 0.5%) – 41 seats

Greens are 13.5% (up 2%) – 17 seats

New Zealand First 6.5% (up 1.5%) – 8 seats

Mana Party 0%  – 1 seat

Total Labour-led coalition-bloc:  67 seats (?)

.

Without much doubt, National is on it’s way out – a two-term “government”.

The question is – how much damage will this inept, unfocused, “government” cause before they are thrown out at the next election?

At this point, the only thing we can look forward to is a by-election or a defection from the National-led coalition.
