Poll: Are you more or less likely to vote for the National Party after Todd Muller was elected leader?

  • 23/05/2020

The National Party has a new leader: Todd Muller.

The Bay of Plenty MP who entered Parliament in 2014 after a successful career at companies like Zespri and Fonterra rolled Simon Bridges on Friday after two recent disastrous poll results. 

National was at just 30.6 percent in the Newshub-Reid Research poll released on Monday, instantly prompting speculation about Bridges' future. 

While Muller was a relative unknown to most Kiwis coming into the leadership, he's spent some of the last 24 hours doing media interviews, including on Newshub Nation where he revealed his thoughts on cannabis legalisation and same-sex marriage. He also announced he would take on the small business portfolio.

In his first speech as leader on Friday afternoon, Muller stressed the significance of the upcoming economic recovery and that he wasn't a fan of opposition for opposition's sake.
