Fairfax-IPSOS poll on the GCSB Bill:
- Very Concerned – 29.8%
- Somewhat Concerned 21.7%
- Little Concerned 23.8%
- Not Concerned 24.15
That’s a good scientific poll getting a range of views.
Stuff also has an online poll – these can be notoriously inaccurate as they are self selecting, but on this topic it may give a good indication:
Do you know what is in the GCSB bill?
- Yes I’ve read the bill 18.6%
- Haven’t read it but I’ve been told about the main points 30%
- I’ve got a general idea 33.1%
- I don’t know what’s in the bill 18.4%
Total: about 4800 votes
People not interested in the GCSB bill and not knowing about it are less likely to have participated in the online poll.
