Do a survey assessing whether Covid crisis has influenced the relationship between support for main political parties and authoritarianism

An online survey being done from University of Otago is seeking participants from the public to do a survey to assess whether the covid-19 crisis has influenced the relationship between support for New Zealand’s main political parties and authoritarianism.

It will only take 10-15 minutes and most of us have plenty of spare time at the moment.

David Farrar must have had contact that provided more details:

I am a researcher from the University of Otago. We are conducting a study on the lockdown and political beliefs. The survey takes 15-minutes and, in addition to political beliefs, we measure alcohol consumption, how it has changed people’s perceptions of young people (given the media talks about them being the group breaking the lockdown rules), belief in science, and views on conspiracy theories. We also have questions looking at peoples fear about getting covid-19 and measures of compliance with the lockdown rules.

We really need people from across the political spectrum to complete the survey, if you can help with that it would be great.


What is the Aim of the Project?

The aim of the project to assess whether the covid-19 crisis has influenced the relationship between support for New Zealand’s main political parties and authoritarianism.

What Types of Participants are being sought?

We are seeking anyone that is based in New Zealand. We are recruiting participants through both the University of Otago’s Department of Psychology Research Participation Pool and members of the general public through ads on Facebook.

What will Participants be asked to do?

Should you agree to take part in this project, you will be asked to complete a brief 10- to 15-minute online survey.

Do it here.

    I did the survey, but as a lifelong teetotaller I was pissed to discover the survey does not contain any question relating to alcohol measurement.

      It felt like a survey with a strong Lefty mission rather than research.

          The mission is to show National and ACT voters are frightened social conservatives in time for the election campaign.

          My answers won’t help that prejudice.

      • It did, rather; very leadinv questions.

        Language, Maggy; remember that you are a lady. ‘Pissed off’ is the expression unless you are drunk.
