Sadly (if you're a Labour MP or supporter) the new Herald DigiPoll is out today, and it has fallen into step with all the other polls; the Herald reports:
Labour's support has slumped to its worst rating for 15 years in the latest DigiPoll survey, putting critical pressure on leader David Cunliffe.
Its 26.5 per cent support is a slide of four points since June.
With just two months to the election, Labour could slip into the disastrous territory held by National in 2002, when it polled 20.93 per cent in the face of the highly popular Labour Government.
On this poll of decided voters National would be able to govern alone comfortably and gain another 10 MPs.
National has jumped 4.5 points to 54.9 per cent. A Stuff/Ipsos poll earlier this week also put support for National at 54.8 per cent.
Prime Minister John Key is more popular than he has ever been, scoring preferred prime minister on 73.3 per cent, compared with Cunliffe on 10.5 per cent and New Zealand First's Winston Peters on 5.5 per cent.
This is another dreadful poll result for Labour and its leader David Cunliffe. Parliament resumes on Tuesday for its final two-week sitting before the General Election, and Labour's support is crumbling. The education policies announced at the party's congress a fortnight ago appear to have been rejected by voters. Either that, or the phone is off the hook, and nothing that Labour promises is going to connect with voters.
Here's how the Parliament would look under DigiPoll's numbers:
We understand there's a 3News poll out tonight as well. If that also shows Labour in the 20's, that will make four of the five main polls telling the same story in a matter of four days, with only the One News-Colmar Brunton poll remaining to complete the July cycle.
And we'll leave the last word on this poll to veteran leftie activist Chris Trotter. Asked for comment by the Herald, he has told the truth:
Political commentator Chris Trotter said the poll indicated Labour was "more or less bereft of hope".
"Labour is in an extremely parlous position, and the situation is deteriorating."
There's only one question left to be asked; how low can Labour go?
