Published: Mon 22 Jul 2002 09:44 AM
A snap NZ-Herald DigiPoll conducted over the weekend shows remarkably different results than all previous Herald DigiPolls, and for that matter all previous polls full stop.
In addition to a remarkable surge in the vote for the previously fairly invisible United Future NZ, up from 1.1% to 6.6%, Labour has fallen six points in less than a week, NZ First has surged forward to over 10% and the Greens.have dropped 4.5 points.
The snap poll surveyed 512 voters, compared to the usual Digipoll sample of closer to 900.

Labour 40.8% (46.7%)
National 23.6% (23.1%)
Green 6.9% (11.3 %)
NZ First 10.2% (8.3%)
ACT 8.1% (5.5%)
United Future 6.6% (1.1%)
Other 3.8% (Jim Anderton’s Progressive Coalition 1.3%, Christian Heritage1.3%, Alliance 0.4%)
