NEW POLL: Labour up, Greens down but Centre-Right remains ahead

National is up slightly on last month to 37.3% (+0.2 points) while Labour is up to 30.0% (+4.3 points). The Greens maintain third place with 10.2% (-4.4 points) while ACT gain 2.2 points bringing them to 9.4%

The smaller parties are NZ First on 5.5% (-0.8 points) and Te Pāti Māori on 3.1% (-1.5 points). 

For the minor parties, TOP is on 1.4%, Outdoors and Freedom is on 1.1%, and the others combined were on 2%

This month's results are compared to last month's Taxpayers' Union – Curia poll.

National maintains its 47 seats in Parliament, while Labour is up five seats to 37. The Greens drop back to 13 seats (down five), while ACT rises to 12 seats (up three). NZ First is down one seat to 7 while Te Pāti Māori is unchanged on 6 seats. 

The combined projected seats for the Centre-Right of 66 seats is up 2 from last month while the Centre-Left is steady on 56 seats. 

On these numbers, National and ACT would require the support of NZ First to form a government. Due to the drop in Te Pāti Māori's support, a Parliament on these figures would have 2 overhang seats.

45.1% (+6.2 points) of New Zealanders think the country is heading in the right direction while 42.6% (-5.3 points) say the wrong direction for a net country direction of +2.5% (up 11.5 points)

This is the first time since February that voters have had a net positive view of the country direction.
