It’s time for the fourth triennial New Zealand General Election thread. Election day is 19 Septmeber. You can relive the drama of the last three threads here (2017, 2014, 2011). The 2011 thread has a good general introduction to the NZ electoral system and the main parties. Wikipedia’s [polling page] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opinion_polling_for_the_2020_New_Zealand_general_election) is great and keep well up to date by the wikipedians.
This time round, Labour appears to have a commanding lead, National have switched leaders twice in the past couple of months, the Greens have lost support and are in danger of dropping below 5%, New Zealand First are looking in real danger of dropping out of Parliament entirely, and ACT seem to be undergoing something of a resurgence.
