3-newsIt’s election year!  Prepare yourself, it’s probably going to be a long one.  Remember though, it’s a three way race.  In one corner we have the left.  In the other corner we have the right.  And in another corner, we have the media.  Everyone wants to win.

3 news to release first major OPINION poll of 2014 – 6PM SUNDAY

The first major opinion poll of the election year will be out on Sunday, and it suggests the 2014 general election will be one of the most closely fought in New Zealand history.

The 3 News/Reid Research poll will be released in the 6pm bulletin tonight night (Sunday 2 February).

Political Editor Patrick Gower says it reveals “a truly fascinating political situation.”

“We have never recorded a result like this before. But it still reflects an entirely possible election night result.

“This poll will shock some of our politicians. This will really shake things up as we start election year.”

The poll of 1000 people was conducted between January 23-29, picking up reaction to the State of the Nation speeches by both Prime Minister John Key and Labour leader David Cunliffe.

Full details of the poll will be on 3 News tonight night (6pm on TV3), and available at from 6pm.
