Thursday Nov 06, 2008, Auckland, New Zealand--Two opinion polls out tonight signal a National-led government is on the cards after election day.
A One News Colmar Brunton Poll and TV3's TNS Poll both have National with a respective 13 point lead and 12 point lead over Labour - two days from the election.
National has more than 45 percent support in both polls, and would have the numbers, with support from ACT and United Future, to form a government.
Both polls have Labour at 35 percent and below.
With New Zealand First failing to make the five percent MMP threshold, the figures show Labour unable to muster the numbers to take the Treasury benches.
The One News Colmar Brunton Poll showed National would have the numbers to govern even without the Maori Party - who are still being labelled as the kingmakers in this election.
However Labour would lack the numbers necessary, even if it formed a coalition with the Greens, the Progressives and the Maori Party.
The TV3 TNS Poll saw National up 1 per cent with 46 per cent support and Labour down 4.3 per cent on 33.1 per cent.
John Key was the preferred Prime Minister on 36.4 per cent, with Helen Clark on 34.2 per cent.
