Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: The latest political poll spells real danger to the Labour-led Government. After ruling NZ First out as a possible coalition partner by National, NZF has slumped to 3%.

Now while no one can ever rule Winston Peters out, to be polling this low 6 months out from an election suggests that they are in real trouble and NZF have gone backwards over the last 6 years on election day.

If NZF don't get re-elected, it's almost certain that a National-ACT Government could win.

With the Green Party increasingly alienating itself with fringe debates, Jacinda has run out of mates with populist appeal despite Labour climbing in the polls since her election.

Who could rescue Jacinda in a tight election that goes right down to the wire?

Step up the Māori Party.

If the Māori Party can field a strong candidate in Tāmaki Makaurau, beat Labour and bring in one MP off the Party-list, the Māori Party could be all that saves NZ from a National-ACT Government.

Interesting days ahead.
