Poll Watch: Herald DigiPoll Has Surprises Galore

A snap NZ-Herald DigiPoll conducted over the weekend shows remarkably different results than all previous Herald DigiPolls, and for that matter all previous polls full stop.

The snap poll surveyed 512 voters, compared to the usual Digipoll sample of closer to 900.
