Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: This weeks Roy Morgan Poll is another unprecedented blow to the National Party and is proof positive Labour has made impressive inroads to the previously solid National voting bloc.

Roy Morgan have Labour at an astounding 56.5% and National plummeting to 26.5%.

The Poll covered two days of Muller's coup and follows two previous polls with TV3 & TVNZ that showed the same trends.

Jacinda's leadership throughout the lockdown has been watched by National voters who may have only ever seen her previously in news soundbites or short interviews. At a time when they felt most vulnerable, they watched Jacinda 1pm week daily give them a sense of real leadership and with that gratitude comes political loyalty.

Hence the enormous boost to Labour.

But the Poll also provides a real glimmer of hope for the Māori Party. In the Roy Morgan Poll they gained 1.5%, if the Māori Party win an electorate, which is a possibility in Te Tai Hauāuru and Tamaki Makaurau, they would pull in another MP off the Party list.

The Māori Party continue to fly under the mainstream media radar and could be the surprise winner on election night.

As for the National Party, there will be some real questions over what Todd Muller is actually going to do to win those voters back, especially with the hard right vote moving to ACT.

National could end up winning a historically low vote in September.
