New Zealand's Ardern on track to win September election, poll shows

Source:

Support for New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern rose during July, a poll showed, keeping her Labour party on track to win a general election in September.

The 1 NEWS Colmar Brunton Poll showed Labour's popularity at 53%, a rise of three percentage points from late June.

If repeated in the elections, that would allow the party to govern on itsown rather than in coalition.

The opposition National party lost six percentage points to 32%, after a series of scandals and a change of leader.

Support for incoming Nationals chief Judith Collins rose to 20% on a preferred prime minister basis, far higher thanprevious party leaders, but still well behind Ms Ardern, whose popularity was steady at 54%.
