Election Forecast updated – and what Parliament would look like

I’ve updated my Election Forecast with the results of tonight’s Colmar Brunton poll. While the gap has significantly closed between National and Labour, the Nats are still slightly ahead in my forecast. Both major parties could form a government with the support of NZ First.

I’ve also done a breakdown of who would actually make it into Parliament on these numbers. With Labour polling almost 20 points higher than they did in 2014, it’s a fairly safe bet that they’d pick up additional electorate seats. For the purposes of this I’ve made a guess that they’d pick up Auckland Central, Ōhāriu, Maungakiekie, Christchurch Central and Waimakariri – which were all less than 3,000 votes out of reach in 2014.

If you disagree on which seats would change hands, you can use my National and Labour calculators to see who would make it in at any level of support.

Here’s what Parliament would look like:
