SHOCK - TV3 Campbell Live ‘Marriage-Equality bill’ poll

SHOCK - TV3 Campbell Live ‘Marriage-Equality bill’ poll: 78% opposed to bill - 22% support (17,000 responses)

APRIL 18, 2013 BY SPCS

HTTP://WWW.SPCS.ORG.NZ/2013/TV3-CAMPBELL-LIVE-MARRIAGE-EQUALITY-BILL-POLL-78-OPPOSED-TO-BILL-17000-RESPONSES/

LAST NIGHT (17 APRIL) TV3 CAMPBELL LIVE RAN A POLL ON LOUISA WALL’S SAME-SEX ‘MARRIAGE’ BILL (THE SO-CALLED ‘MARRIAGE-EQUALITY BILL) AND THERE WERE “NEARLY 17,000 RESPONDENTS (BY TEXT) TO THE QUESTION: “DO YOU SUPPORT THE ‘MARRIAGE-EQUALITY BILL’?” – YES OR NO.

TV3 host John Campbell announced the results at the end of the programme: 78% opposed to bill (“NO”) and only 22% supported it (“YES”). Campbell stated that he believed this was the second largest number of responses ever received to a TV3 poll.

In Parliament last night the Bill was supported at its Third Reading by a majority of MPs: 77 in favour: 43 opposed. This result is a total reversal of the TV3 poll results and shows that opponents of the bill are right in demanding a referendum on this issue.

Why has there been a total media blackout on this highly significant TV3 poll result that strongly suggest that the majority of MPs have misjudged the strength public opinion against this bill.

Gordon Campbell: On Chilling The Warm Fuzzies About The US/China Trade Deal

Hold the champagne, folks. This week’s China/US deal is more about a change in tone between the world’s two biggest economies – thank goodness they’re not slapping more tariffs on each other! - than a landmark change in substance. The high walls of US and Chinese tariffs built in recent years will largely remain intact, and few economists are predicting the deal will significantly boost the growth prospects for a slowing US economy. As the New York Times noted this morning, the likes of New Zealand will still face the trade barriers imposed by the Trump administration during the recent rounds of fighting. More>>
