Herald poll vs Whaleoil poll

The Herald-Digipoll results came out this morning.  As you may recall, we ran our own survey a little while ago so we could compare.

The Digipoll had 750 responses

Whaleoil Poll Result: Party vote and preferred Prime Minister

Thanks for participating in our poll questions two days ago.  Of course, these are not “scientific”, nor are they representative of anything except what our self-selecting group of voters decided to share, but based on that, we can draw some conclusions about the Whaleoil community.

Party vote

I really didn’t expect our party vote results to be anything but a landslide for National, but it also shows the average Whaleoil reader also tends to be conservatively liberal.

1,183 people voted in the Party vote poll.  Two said they wouldn’t vote at all, which I find fascinating because why read a political blog if you have no interest in voting?

2 people would also vote for a party “Not yet registered”.  This could be the Internet Party, I guess.

Here are the results

  • National (76%, 898 Votes)
  • ACT (14%, 164 Votes)
  • Conservatives (5%, 54 Votes)
  • Labour (1%, 11 Votes)
  • NZ First (1%, 10 Votes)
  • Legalise Cannabis (0%, 5 Votes)
  • Green (0%, 4 Votes)
  • United Future (0%, 2 Votes)
  • Maori (0%, 1 Votes)
  • Focus NZ (0%, 1 Votes)
  • Alliance (0%, 0 Votes)
  • Democrats (0%, 0 Votes)
  • Mana (0%, 0 Votes)

About 2% (26 people) of Whaloil poll voters are still undecided.  Not sure what that means for guests posts!  Doesn’t look like fertile ground to turn people’s votes around.   Read more »

Whaleoil poll result: Len Brown and Kim Dotcom

Thanks for participating in yesterday’s poll questions.  Of course, these are not “scientific”, nor are they representative of anything except what our self-selecting group of voters decided to share, but based on that, we can draw some conclusions about the Whaleoil community.

Len-Brown-MBLen Brown

47 people voted for Len Brown, 776 didn’t, and 578 weren’t allowed to vote.

7 people would vote for him again.

Assuming that those 7 also voted for him the first time, that’s a 85% drop in support from Auckland based Whaleoil voters.  Will be interesting to see if that is reflected in the Herald Digipol when it comes out.

1021 people felt Len should have resigned, with 26 people believing he’s doing the right thing right now.

Rather confusingly, 81 people think Len has a mandate (I can’t figure that out).  883 people don’t.
