A recently released UMR poll commissioned by right-wing think tank the Maxim Institute shows strong support for the policies of the last Labour Government and little taste for the reforms National is trying to push through.
It seems that if you ask Kiwis what kind of policies they want, the answer is ‘make mine a socialist one please’. Not much coverage of it in the msm though because the findings don’t suit their corporate interests.
It does kind of explain why National don’t like public consultation all that much. Probably marks the first and last time Maxim dabble with empirical evidence too.
