NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 26/03/2017

Support for the Maori Party has surged in a poll, while support for NZ First has fallen.

Support for the Maori Party rose three points to 4 per cent in the the latest Colmar Brunton poll for One News. It's the party's highest result since 2008.

National is unchanged on 46 per cent, Labour is unchanged on 30 per cent as are the Greens on 11 per cent.

Support for NZ First is down three points to 8 per cent.

The Maori Party is current government partner so its rise in support is expected to be welcomed by National.
