Public Attitudes To The ETS

David Farrar's excellent new blog Curiablog carries the full details of an interesting DigiPoll poll carried out for Exceltium (an Auckland PR/lobbying firm). We hope all the small parties read this. David has also done an analysis on Kiwiblog. This poll convinces us that this issue isn't going to be a positive one for Labour if they want to keep it partisan (as the PM is suggesting). We will just highlight one finding

NZ First potential voters - 19% say best option is to pass the ETS before the Australians, 62% say encourage Helen Clark to begin multi-party talks after she talks to the Australian PM and 13% say don’t support ETS at all.
