While many commentators believe that Judith Collins won the first election debate, her party still has a fight on their hands.
A poll released just before the election started shows that Labour is sitting on 48 per cent, while National has also dropped further to 31 per cent.
The poll means Labour would get 62 seats and could govern alone.
Despite the disappointing result, Collins has ridden the highs from her strong debate performance.
NZ Herald political reporter Jason Walls, who was following Collins on the campaign trail after the debate, joined Francesca Rudkin to discuss the fallout from the debate, and what we can expect to see from the second debate this Wednesday.
