Emanuel Kalafatelis has just been on Radio NZ – Research NZ did a proper random poll of New Zealanders about the GCSB bill.
In the past the Government Communications Security Bureau, the GCSB, has not been permitted to monitor New Zealand residents. A law comes into force shortly that will allow the GCSB to monitor residents as well as non-residents.
Are you in favour or not in favour of the GCSB being allowed to do this?
- 52% – not in favour
- 36% – in favour
- 11% – unsure
Note: This question does not measure how strongly people hold their view – either in favour or not in favour. It measures how many people hold each view.
Thank you Research NZ!
EDIT: Link to Emanuel reporting on the results here. Starts at around 8 minutes.
EDIT: Research NZ's report here. Seems a bit odd to group Maori and Pacific people together. I appreciate that doing this makes the sub-sample larger, but huh?
[I'll be grabbing my popcorn for the result of the Campbell Live poll 🙂 ].
