Nearly 40 percent of people think National leader Christopher Luxon is doing a good job but the Prime Minister is still some way ahead.
The latest Newshub-Reid Research poll shows 58.4 percent of people think Jacinda Ardern is performing well, up 1.5 points on her last result.
That compares to 30 percent who think she's not doing a good job - down 2.2 points from her last result.
Additionally, a small proportion of Kiwis 10.5 percent think she's neither doing well nor poorly.
Meanwhile 39.3 percent of people think Luxon is performing well, up 17.6 points on previous leader Judith Collins' last result.
That compares to 21.3 percent who say he's performing poorly, down 37.2 points on Collins' last result. But a chunk of people, 28.3, percent say he's neither doing good nor bad.
Ardern also did well in the preferred Prime Minister poll with 43.3 percent - up 1.6 points.
But Luxon also burst onto the scene with 17.8 percent. The results were bad news for ACT leader David Seymour who was down 4 points to 7.9 percent.
The poll also shows Kiwis are split over the Government's handling of the Omicron variant.
When asked, do you think the Government has prepared well enough for an Omicron outbreak? 44.5 percent said yes while 44.3 percent said no.
Newshub political reporter Jenna Lynch told AM it's a "remarkable" result for Labour.
"When you look at the past couple of weeks and the start to the year that they had. I think the announcement around boosters last week, the announcement around the border, our poll was open during that time so perhaps people are seeing a turning of the corner for the Omicron outbreak."
Lynch said the results also show "the National Paty has come back".
The Newshub-Reid Research poll was conducted between 22 January – 4 February 2022 with a margin of error of 3.1 percent.
