Opposition rubbishes poll showing National Party at 25pct

From Morning Report, 7:16 am on 27 July 2020

The Opposition has trashed the latest political poll, dismissing it outright, as it shows the party plummeting to new lows.

The Newshub Reid Research poll began surveying two days after Judith Collins took over - and stayed in the field till the end of last week.

It makes sobering reading for the new leader - National is at just over 25 percent, while Labour is on nearly 61.

On those numbers, Labour would be able to comfortably govern alone with 77 MPs.

National would have just 32.
