National Holds High Rating In Latest Poll

Wellington, Oct 11 NZPA - National is holding its high poll rating in a survey taken after the increase in GST.

TV3's latest poll, broadcast tonight, showed National at 53.8 percent support, down just 0.7 percent since the last poll.

Labour had made a small gain, up two points to 32.6 percent.

Prime Minister John Key was up two points to 50.6 percent in the personal popularity stakes against 8.8 percent for Labour leader Phil Goff.

Minor parties were mostly unchanged, although ACT slipped further to 0.9 percent.

On tonight's figures, if an election was held now National would have enough seats in Parliament to govern alone without any support party.

The margin of error is usually plus or minus about 3.2 percent.
