The Greens are down two per cent to five per cent, and New Zealand First is below the five per cent threshold at three per cent, down two this poll.

It's clear from the poll that Labour's rise is coming at the expense of its partners in Government, the Greens and New Zealand First.

Political analyst Dr Bryce Edwards said Labour's best poll result since 2003, at 48 per cent approval, has been very much guided by the eventful personal life of the Prime Minister in the New Year.
