Do Kiwis trust Labour more than National on the economy? Three polls say yes.

As our economic rebuild gets underway, New Zealand needs a strong, responsible government to lead our recovery. National bills itself as the Party with economic credibility, but that’s not what the numbers show or what voters believe.

In the past five months, three polls have consistently shown that more New Zealanders trust Labour to run our economy than National – and by significant margins.
