A new political poll shows National with a strong lead over Labour and the Greens, echoing the results of last week's Fairfax Media-Ipsos survey.

Today's Roy Morgan Poll had National on 48 per cent compared to 49.4 in the Fairfax survey.

Support for Labour was down sharply to 30 per cent (down 3 percentage points), while the Greens were up one percentage point to 12 per cent. The two Opposition parties were on 31.8 and 10 respectively in the Fairfax-Ipsos poll.

But support for National's support parties remained low, with the Maori Party on 0.5 per cent, ACT on 1 per cent and United Future 0.5 per cent.

NZ First inched above the 5 per cent MMP threshold at 5.5 per cent.

Mana was unchanged on 1 per cent and the Conservative Party was on 1 per cent.

Kim Dotcom's planned Internet Party scored 1 per cent, down from 1.5 per cent in the previous survey.
