National has no mandate

Today, reported:

Prime Minister John Key says anger over the potential sale of the Crafar farms to a Chinese company has not damaged support for the National Party.

Meanwhile in the real world, the latest Roy Morgan polling shows a very different story:

Labour 31.5
Greens 13
NZ1st 5
Mana 1
Total 50.5

National 45.5
Act 0.5
UF 0.5
Maori 1.5
Total 48

If there was a general election today, National would not be the government.
