Poll: ‘The Big Issues’

In their recent poll Newshub/Reid Research respondents “were asked to rank the issues most important to them in this election, from seven major subject areas” – New Zealand’s top election concerns

This is a simplistic result – “the issue ranked most important to voters”:

That is a limited list, and gives no indication how much people are concerned about the issues. For example many people could be nearly as concerned about housing, the environment and money as about health. So this is a fairly rough indication of what people see as the big issues.

Here are party comparisons:

For some reason they did not include a NZ First breakdown.

    Only 31.6% of Green voters consider the environment the biggest issue, I am lost for words.

      Worrying about the environment is a luxury usually you want a roof over your head and access to food, health care and education for your children first and foremost.

      Hardly surprising the more you have the more you worry about it being taken off you.

      Whoops! You forgot to mention the biggest issue for National supporters in this poll was ‘health’. Funny that.

          Taxpayers have to worry about MONEY because that is what the govt takes off them to pay for all the services the govt provides.

    Im guessing if it was poll of Natz voters.. there would only be 3 issues; money, MONEY & MORE MONEY ! 😀

    Unfortunately you cant eat, drink or breath in a $100 note, with the way they are steering the economy.. pollution & more pollution; less of us maybe able to have healthy food, water & air soon ?! 😦

      btw; on the other ‘issues’.. its likely that Natz would only really be concerned/interested, if they put ‘Privatisation of’ in the front ?
