Roy Morgan result excludes Cannabis Party
MEDIA RELEASE - 23/3/14
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Aotearoa Legalise Cannabis Party could already be on 1% of
the vote according to the latest Roy Morgan poll.
ALCP leader Julian Crawford said it was disappointing to be
lumped into the 'Others' section of the results.
like to see a detailed breakdown of the 'Others' results
because we believe much of that support could be going to
ALCP," Mr Crawford said.
"I find it hard to believe that
Social Credit, Alliance or FocusNZ contribute significantly
to that figure."
ALCP has asked Roy Morgan Research to
include the ALCP as a stand alone party in future
Especially since the results showed other parties
individually, even if they were on 0%.
ALCP has been
registered since 1996 and has serious Parliamentary
ambitions, Mr Crawford said.
"We are disappointed to see
this bias against our party but we shall continue to fight
for equal rights for all New Zealanders."

Gordon Campbell: On Populism And Labour 2017
For many people on the centre-left, populism is a dirty word, and a shorthand for the politics of bigotry. In this country, it has tended to be equated with the angry legions of New Zealand First. Who knew they were not just a reactionary spasm, but the wave of the future?
Certainly, at the end of this week, the next US President will have won office (at least in part) thanks to his proven ability at (a) scapegoating refugees and migrants (b) wooing neo-Nazis and racial supremacists (c) attacking journalists and judges (d) threatening to jail his opponents (e) urging nuclear proliferation and (e) by promising to restrict women’s rights to control their own fertility.
On the face of that campaign record, there wouldn’t seem to be much in common between Donald Trump and say, Spain’s centre-left populist party, Podemos. Yet arguably, the similarities could be instructive for the Labour/Green partnership here. More>>
