Jacinda Ardern rates fellow politicians for The Edge's Jacinda Tinder

The Labour Party's new leader has rated her fellow political leaders in a game of Jacinda Tinder - and they didn't fare well.

In the game, which she played over the phone on Wednesday afternoon with The Edge's Jay-Jay, Dom & Randell, she had to swipe on politicians in the same way she would on the dating app.

But swiping right - the action that indicates she gives the person her seal of approval - was not in high demand, and the likes of US President Donald Trump, New Zealand First leader Winston Peters, and former Prime Minister John Key didn't get a look in.

Bill English, Ardern's biggest rival in the election as leader of National, predictably got a left swipe too - though Ardern said the basis of that decision hinged solely on his insistence on putting spaghetti on pizza.

However there was a trio who did get swiped right by the Labour leader: ex-US President Barack Obama, Newshub political reporter Patrick Gower - because "he's so good for a yarn" - and her partner, former Edge radio host Clarke Gayford.

"Lock him in," she laughed.
