Former leader of the National Party Simon Bridges is now more popular than the Party's current leader – but will he go for the leadership?
Bridges is in the studio with Nick Mills for Wellington Mornings on Newstalk ZB discussing his new book, sudden popularity and whether he wants to be the leader of the Opposition once more, following the shock new poll results.

Bridges was backed by 40.7 per cent of voters, with Collins having the support of just 23.3 per cent - the remainder don't know.
