There is much angst and waiting, because the latest Roy Morgan poll is really bad for Labour.
The Roy Morgan poll before that one was really good for Labour.
There's a hint for those now panicking. Whatever we may think of David Shearer's overall performance, he didn't become an unelectable muppet overnight.
Polls go up and and polls go down. The Roy Morgan is probably more prone to large swings than the other political polls.
But it's the trend that counts. If a number of polls begin to show National up and Labour down, then Labour supporters may have cause to panic. The trend to date has in fact has shown Labour gaining support.
That doesn't mean everything's fine and that there's no call to be alarmed about Labour's performance. There's plenty to be concerned about. But this poll doesn't on its own tell us anything useful.
