Pauline Hanson's One Nation is scooping up support in regional NSW ahead of the next state election, according to Nationals' internal party polling.

The numbers gathered for the Nationals show One Nation is likely to poll better than the Shooters, Fishers and Farmers Party on first party preferences in up to 13 seats, The Daily Telegraph reported on Thursday.

One Nation is polling at 12 per cent of the primary vote in the Northern Tablelands, at 11 per cent in the seat of Barwon, and at 10 per cent in Bathurst, Lismore and Myall Lakes.

SFF is running at around single digit figures, according to the polling.

Ms Hanson will have a team of One Nation candidates for lower and upper house seats in the NSW election due in November.

"I know people are dissatisfied with (Premier Gladys) Berejiklian, the Liberal Party, the Labor Party, and I don't think they have a lot of confidence in Luke Foley," Ms Hanson told the Telegraph.

Ms Berejiklian on Thursday will make a pitch to the voters of NSW, playing up her working-class roots, when she addresses the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce.

"My strong pitch is that under the Liberal National government you'll have stronger, better future," she told the Telegraph.
