Wellington – Two polls over the weekend have shown very similar results, but still record National getting a larger share of the party vote than iPredict traders believe will happen on election day.
The TV3/Reid Research poll put National on 52.3 percent down 5.1 points and Labour up 3 points to 30.2.
This is near alignment with a Herald-DigiPoll on Saturday morning which put National with the support of 53.5 percent of decided voters, up 1.5 percentage points on the previous poll, in August and Labour on 30.3 percent support (down 1.2).
