Labour policy failing to resonate with voters

From Morning Report, 7:17 am on 22 August 2023

Support for Labour has crashed into the twenties, in the latest political poll.

The 1News Verian survey shows the party has dropped four points to 29 percent. National is up two points to 37 percent, while ACT is up one on 13 percent.

Those numbers would give the right bloc 65 seats in Parliament - enough to comfortably form a government.
