Two political polls out over the weekend spell bad news for Labour.
The latest One News Colmar Brunton poll had National winning 56% of the party vote, while Labour would only win 30% of the vote.
That would give National 69 seats, enough to govern alone.
A 3 News poll was not quite such bad news for Labour, but it still gave National 67 seats.
Prime Minister John Key has said National will still consult with support parties (Act, Maori Party, United Future) even if the party wins enough seats to govern alone.
The general election is to take place on November 26.
