National extends lead

National has extended its lead over Labour in the latest poll, which also shows a sharp drop in consumer confidence.

The Morgan poll puts National on 51 per cent support (up 1.5 percentage points) and Labour on 34 per cent (down 1 point). It contradicts other recent polls which show Labour slightly closing the gap.

The consumer confidence index dropped to a 22-month low as all major indicators dropped from the previous survey result.
