Support for New Zealand's ruling Labour Party dropped in the latest poll on Friday, but it would still be enough for Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern to govern alone.

The Newshub-Reid research poll showed support for Ardern's party at 45.8%, down 4.3 percentage points from the last poll.

The opposition National Party was at 31.1%, up 1.5 percentage points.

The Green Party, a likely coalition partner of Labour was at 6.3%.
