Corkery Drives The Reactor Worm Into The Ground

Scoop Reactor - Week Ending 29 August

Internet Mana spokeswoman Pam Corkery showed just what a decisive figure she is driving last week's Roy Morgan Reactor worm plummeting to near record lows.

Corkery's abuse of journalists wanting to ask questions to Kim Dotcom instead of covering Internet Mana's campaign launch was universally disliked by all respondents, even those who described themselves as supporting "Other" parties.

There was a similar reaction to veteran activist Tame Iti though interestingly as he spoke some respondents started to agree slightly more with him.

The most positive responses were to Labour's Annette King talking about KiwiBuild and the Labour party opening address. This response was mainly driven by women with men feeling more neutral.

The results of last week's Reactor can be viewed here here,.

Shortly the latest Reactor will be launched testing opinions to the resignation of Judith Collins and related matters.
