Labour has been handed some rare good news on the last day of the current Parliament, with a new poll showing a big rebound in its fortunes.

The latest Roy Morgan survey puts Labour at 30 per cent, up 6.5 percentage points on the same poll two weeks ago. National was down 5 percentage points at 46 per cent, its lowest level in the poll since May.

Backing for Prime Minister John Key's support parties was little changed with the Maori Party on 1.5 (up 0.5 percentage points) while ACT and UnitedFuture were each on 0.5 per cent (unchanged). The Conservatives were on 1 per cent (unchanged).

Among Labour's potential backers the Greens were down 3 percentage points on 12 per cent and the Internet-Mana Party was on 2.5 per cent (up 1.0 percentage point), giving it a likely four MPs if it wins an electorate seat.

NZ First was down 1 percentage point at 5 per cent and likely on those numbers to decide whether Labour or National would form a government.

The landline and mobile phone poll of 818 voters was taken between July 14 and last Sunday.
