The Act Party is quickly gaining support, but it's pointing fingers at public servants for Labour's major lead. 

Newshub's latest Reid Research poll shows a record 4.9 percent increase for the Act Party to 16 percent overall. 

National slumped to 26.9 percent, and Labour dropped slightly to 42.7 percent. 

Act Party Leader David Seymour told Mike Hosking he blames the public sector for the majority of Labour's support. 

“There’s people who have a job that’s inside, that’s taxpayer funded, that’s carried on. So, they’re saying ‘Oh well, we don’t have Covid.’”
