We asked people on the streets about a new poll showing Labour ahead of National.
I guess it proves a point that people want someone they can relate to. As soon as Jacinda became the face of Labour the party instantly rose.

I think it's awesome to be honest. I've always been team Labour so it's a good change.

It was to be expected given the nature of the way things have been going. Jacinda is young and vibrant and she's something Labour have been lacking. They needed her.
AROHA BUDD, 38
I think that sums up this election. Maybe Labour has made the right decision choosing Jacinda Ardern. It's become so crazy it's distracting from the important things, hopefully it slows down.
