NZ Ardern's party maintains double-digit lead in latest poll

WELLINGTON, Oct 8 (Reuters) - Support for New Zealand’s ruling Labour Party was unchanged with just over a week to the general election and it continued to enjoy a double-digit lead over the main opposition party, an opinion poll showed on Thursday.

The closely watched 1News-Colmar Brunton poll showed support for Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s party, which is seeking a second term in office, at 47%, unchanged from the last poll on Sept. 28.

The opposition National party was down by one percentage point at 32%.

Smaller parties continued to get good support, the poll showed. (Reporting by Praveen Menon; Editing by Raju Gopalakrishnan)
