New Zealand’s ruling National Party is headed for an outright win, the first since the MMP system was introduced, while support for Labour has faded, according to a Fairfax Media poll.
National support was at 52.5 percent while Labour’s slipped to 25.9 percent, the poll shows. It would be the first time a party had won more than 50 percent of the vote since 1951, Fairfax reported.
If the results were repeated at the Nov. 26 election, Labour would lose 10 seats and National would pick up an extra nine seats.
The Greens, typically an ally of Labour, have seen their support rise to 12.6 percent, giving it seven more seats. It is the only minor party tracking above 10 percent.
Labour leader Phil Goff has improved his preferred prime minister rating to 13.5 percent from 9.1 percent, still well behind Prime Minister John Key on 52.2 percent.
The poll surveyed 1,000 people between Nov. 3 and Nov. 7 and has a margin of error of 3.1 percent.
