The Conservative Party's push back against gay marriage legislation has given it a lift in a new poll.
The party, which is not in parliament, is on 1.5 per cent in a Herald-Digipoll released on Tuesday, up from 0.5 per cent in a poll last month.
The Conservatives fell off the public radar after receiving 2.65 per cent support in last year's election but leader Colin Craig has been grabbing headlines with his opposition to Labour MP Louisa Wall's bill to legalise gay marriage.
The result puts the Conservative Party on equal support to the Maori Party, which is up 0.2 points to 1.5 per cent, and ahead of Mana on 0.3 (down 1.4), United future on 0.3 (down 0.2) and ACT 0.2 (down 0.3).
However, those four small parties all have electorate seats, guaranteeing them seats in parliament.
Labour takes a small hit in the poll, dropping two points to 32 per cent support, while National is up 0.4 to 47.9 per cent.
The Greens are up 1.6 to 10.7 per cent, while NZ First gets back across the five per cent threshold required for a party to enter parliament, up 1.1 to 5.5 per cent.
The result means the party is safer if parliament adopts the Electoral Commission's recommendation to lower the threshold from five to four per cent - which would see the Conservatives need to pick up just 2.5 per cent.
