The poll for Newshub has National at 45.8 percent and Labour on 37.3 percent, with the Greens and NZ First both up to 7.1 percent.

Labour and the Greens combined would have 44 percent on those numbers, putting them almost on par with National and leaving Winston Peters' NZ First again with the chance to choose.

Compared to the previous Reid Research poll, National was down 1.5 percent and Labour also down 0.5 percent with the Greens up 2.2 percent. NZ First gained 1.1 percent.

The Māori Party, The Opportunities Party and ACT all failed to poll above 1 percent.
