The first political poll of the year shows little change in the electoral landscape with the outcome of an election still too close to call and the minor parties playing a crucial role

The Roy Morgan survey showed the combined Labour-Green vote at 46 per cent, up one, against  National's 43.5 per cent (down 1.5 per cent).

However, backing for Prime Minister John Key's support parties had  improved slightly with the Maori Party on 2 per cent (up 0.5 per cent), UnitedFuture 0.5 (up 0.5).

ACT remained unchanged on zero. 

Support for Labour was up three at 33.5 per cent but the Greens were down 2 percentage points at 12.5.

NZ First was down one percentage point, and below the MMP threshold, at 4 per cent. Mana was on 0.5 per cent, and the Conservative Party was up 0.6 at 2.5 per cent after leader Colin Craig was frequently in the headlines over summer.
