Support for Jacinda Ardern as prime minister has fallen to its lowest level since before the pandemic, according to the latest 1 News-Colmar Brunton poll.
Support for Ardern slipped 5 percentage points from the last poll in September, to 39%.
However, she remained head and shoulders above her rivals, with support for ACT leader David Seymour as prime minister remaining at 11%, and support for National leader Judith Collins remaining at 5%. Collins' approval rating fell to a dismal -31%.
Former National leader Simon Bridges, who is reportedly whipping up support from his party's caucus to overthrow Collins, was only the preferred prime minister for 1% of those surveyed. Meanwhile Christopher Luxon came in at 4%.
A whopping 26% of those surveyed didn't know who they wanted to be their prime minister - an increase of 5 percentage points since the last poll.
There wasn't too much movement in the poll when it came to the preferred party.
Support for Labour continued to slide to 41%, with it losing a couple of points to National at 28%. Labour is now back in pre-pandemic territory, with it needing the Greens' support to govern.
Having received a big bump in the September poll, support for ACT was stable at 14%. It would have 18 seats in Parliament.
