Labour Party leader David Cunliffe said he wasn't putting any weight on a poll which had the party slumped to new low.

The latest political poll released today had National leading on 55 per cent, leaving Labour well behind on 22.5 per cent - down 2.4 percentage points on the previous poll. The Greens followed on 11.3 per cent.

"I'm actually not at all putting any weight at all on that particular poll,'' Mr Cunliffe said. "It's completely out of line with others that we've taken and other recently published polls.''

"I feel that there's been a very positive couple of weeks for Labour and I'll be keen to see what comes out in future.

"There is one poll that really matters, that's the one on the 20th of September and that's what we're all working towards.''

The poll also found that on the numbers Labour would lose five MPs to just 29.

The poll included at least 1000 New Zealand residents, was taken from August 9 to August 13 and had a margin of error of 3.1 per cent.
