Roy Morgan's unemployment rate confirms trend

National down (48.5 to 42.5%)  in today's Roy Morgan Poll - the one that is usually friendly to Labour. Pretty much a reversal of the last poll when National was up 5.5%.

Roy Morgan also surveys on the topic of unemployment. Their rate is always above the official rate. Their sample is smaller than Statistic NZ's and I suspect changes with every wave.

Their March quarter rate was 8% (compared to the HLFS rate of 6%) but most importantly the trend is the same. Reducing.
