Disarray in the National Party after the re-election of Peter Goodfellow as President.

After the vote at National's annual conference over the weekend, former MP David Carter resigned, saying he had zero confidence in his leadership.

Carter says he has zero confidence in Goodfellow as President.

A Newshub poll also shows half of National voters want Judith Collins out as Party Leader and rural New Zealanders are saying National is no longer the party for them.

Political commentator and former National staffer Monique Poirier told Kerre McIvor the membership isn't happy with Goodfellow.

"He is a good fundraiser and I think that has to be acknowledged, but it is probably fair to say membership is disappointed with his re-election."
