 It's neck and neck, but National leader Bill English is New Zealand's preferred Prime Minister in the latest Newshub-Reid Research poll.

According to the poll, National could govern alone, just scraping a majority of 61 seats from 121. 

The poll has the Greens on 4.9 percent - too low to enter Parliament without winning an electoral seat. Without them, on this poll Labour would be unable to form a coalition government.

Mr English is on 33.1 percent, a 3-point gain on the last poll.

Ms Ardern also rose, up 1.8 percent to 31.7 percent.

The poll has a margin of error of 3.1 percent and was conducted from September 6 to Septemer 11.
