Poll results and plans for an even stronger campaign
The poll results published in today's Herald (By George he's made a difference) may have shown a decrease in support for New Zealand becoming a republic since January 2011 but this last year has seen the republic campaign standing strong against an onslaught of royal PR and hype. Detailed plans to increase the effectiveness of the republic campaign are well under way to reverse the trend entirely. We have seen a concerted publicity campaign by the Monarchy and its supporters all based around large, well-publicised royal events. The tours, jubilee celebrations, wedding and baby have seen an overt effort by royalists to arrest their slow decline in popularity. Our own polling, however, puts our current support at a much healthier 40% level and shows we have stood up well to the onslaught. According to the Herald poll the decline in the last year was only 0.8%. Well within the poll's margin of error (of 3.6%). Our poll showed a rise in support from 36% to 41%. Above the margin of error (of 3.2%).
Irrespective of the wording of each poll both results show that we have a very determined opposition trying hard to stop us. It is very simple. We want New Zealanders to have a choice. They do not. We want a New Zealander. They do not.
These results simply strengthen our resolve to deliver a proper head of state for New Zealand. Our AGM is at the end of this month in Christchurch and detailed polling and strategy plans will see a new look campaign rolled out throughout the year ahead. We need more active supporters, more resources and more determination than ever before. Prince Charles is unacceptable and we need to have head of state reforms in place ready to go so that the end of the Elizabethan era is the start of a fully independent New Zealand.Join today.
