Poll cements National Party as Election winner
c Stan Blanch 2007

It looks like the momentum has gained traction and polls taken before Christmas have continued to show John Key the most preferred Prime Minister, should an election be held today.

The fact that Clark continue to slip behind as leader to a 27% Prime Ministerial approval rating means she is less favoured than the likes of the great George Bush as the leader of the country.

Previously Clark has had a historically very high ranking in the polls as most preferred leader.

Vote in our new Political Animal poll on the left of this blog, not far from the top. You must tick two boxes, one for your constituency and one for the party vote.

The full story of the latest poll, courtesy of the NZPA is below:

The TV One Colmar Brunton poll showed National on 53 percent support, down one point since its last poll in December, and Labour also down one point to 34 percent.

The gap between the main parties was 19 points - the same as it was in December.

National's leader, John Key, increased his lead over Helen Clark in the preferred prime minister stakes.

Mr Key gained one point to 36 percent while Miss Clark slipped from 30 percent to 27 percent.

Tonight's poll showed the Greens up from 4.6 percent to 6 percent, putting them safely over the 5 percent threshold the party must achieve in the next election to stay in Parliament.

New Zealand First was down from 2.2 percent to 1.7 percent while the Maori Party was up from 1.7 percent to 3.3 percent.

The Colmar Brunton poll usually rates National higher than other surveys.

On January 26 a New Zealand Herald DigiPoll put National on 47.5 percent and Labour on 38.7, a gap of 8.8 points.

On February 11 a New Zealand Morgan poll showed National slipping 6.5 points to 45.5 percent and Labour gaining three points to reach 36.5 percent, a gap of nine points.

Tonight's poll showed a small drop in the number of people who thought the economic outlook was getting better - 28 percent compared with 31 percent in December.

The poll was conducted between February 9 and 14. It questioned 1000 voters and had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percent.
