A mixed bag for National in the latest opinion poll.

There's a gap of 21 percent between Labour and National with the Governing party picking up three percentage points.

That puts it on 53, while National has dropped by six percent to 32.

The big winner is ACT, which comes in at five percent, easily outstripping New Zealand First, which is steady on two.

The Greens have dipped slightly to five.

While National would want to do better, Judith Collins and the way she's doing the job sees her winning the approval of 50 percent, far outstripping her two predecessors.    

When it comes to being the Prime Minister though Jacinda Ardern steady on 54 percent with Collins on 20.

This week on The Panel, broadcaster Miles Davis joins the show to talk about the latest poll, along with more stories making news this week.
