Winston Rides The Worm On Land Sales

Scoop Reactor - Week Ending Aug 8:

Winston Peters promise to clamp down on land sales to foreigners was rated most positively by New Zealanders last week.

Those driving the worm on the Roy Morgan/Scoop Reactor viewed John Key’s explanation for the policy and its impact in negative way. This response was particularly accentuated by women who felt more strongly about the issue, whereas men were more neutral.

Across age groups the greatest divergence was those between 18 and 34 feeling negatively about John Key’s comments on ACT and very positively about the Greens offer of free off-peak public transport for student.

There was also a positive reaction to David Cunliffe distancing himself from Internet Mana across all those taking part.
