Greens would be out of Parliament, says poll
The Green Party would be out of Parliament in the event of a snap election, according to the latest television poll figures released last night.
National still leads the poll with 54 percent support, but Labour closed the gap, now at 33 percent, the TV One Colmar Brunton poll said.
However, the Green Party dropped to 4.3 percent, below the 5 percent threshold for entering Parliament under MMP.
The Act Party was up to 3.2 percent and the Maori Party was at 2.7 percent.
Prime Minister John Key remains atop the preferred prime minister stakes, with 50 percent support.
Labour leader Phil Goff was up slightly but still well behind, at 9 percent.
Meanwhile, most people (70 percent of those polled) thought the economy would get better, 16 percent believed it would stay the same and 13 percent believed it would get worse.
