Q+A Colmar Brunton snap poll on Epsom

Q+A Colmar Brunton snap poll on Epsom.

Key quotes:

If you want John Key to remain Prime Minister and National in power, party vote National. That’s the crucial message. In Epsom we've said we're encouraging National supporters to vote for the ACT candidate, and we're very happy with that.” Paul Goldsmith, National Party Candidate

“I have to be honest most people talk to me about transport because that’s a big reason why the Greens are popular. We've launched a very comprehensive policy to get world class transport system for Auckland and I think the people at Epsom want to live in a one class city and unfortunately the National Party is denying them that by holding up progress in the city rail link and other issues like that. Newmarket station is in the heart of the electorate and I think people deserve to have a train every five minutes.” Julie Anne Genter, Green Party Candidate

“Well what's very clear on the street when we door knock people and we talk to them at the shops, is that people have had enough of the games. People don’t want the deal again, and what your poll reveals this morning is that people actually when they're asked the direct question, do not want ACT to be re-elected in this electorate.” Michael Wood, Labour Candidate

“Well first of all there's a lot of things that we'd like to change about education. We'd actually like to open up the supply of education by allowing schools to run themselves with more flexibility. Zoning is one of the restrictions that schools face. It's the last one that we'd want to remove, and the reason for that is twofold.” David Seymour, Act candidate

“I don’t agree that I don’t have a chance of winning Epsom. I think this is going to be greatest turnaround the country has ever seen. We are the opportunity to maintain stable centre right government. And if I'm elected at the polling that we've got at the moment across the country I'd take in three or four people. David Seymour would take in David Seymour.” Christine Rankin, Conservative Candidate
