Another poll

A 3 News (1) confirms what was suggested by last week's Morgan poll - National are steady, but just under the 50% mark. Labour are pulling back support, climbing into the mid-30s. Minor parties are all over the place. In this poll, NZ First are out, Greens are in. The Morgan poll had it the other way around.

One truly bemusing prospect is that ACT's 'surge' to 2% might bump Roger Douglas back into parliament. Since I don't think he actually wants to be there - too much like hard work - I suspect he's watching the polls with even more trepidation than Helen Clark and John Key.
