Reactor Rates The Final Debate An Even Affair

To help ensure that the accuracy of the results across the spectrum of New Zealand electors, Roy Morgan will be supplementing the crowd-sourced data with the responses of a selected panel of respondents taken from its 12,000 strong market leading Single Source Survey Panel.

The final Leaders Debate was an even affair with viewers responding negatively when John Key and Cunliffe argued and people responding positively to Key’s criticism of Kim Dotcom.

Those taking part in Roy Morgan’s Reactor were asked to say whether they agreed or disagreed about what they were seeing and hearing on TV in real time.

There was a fairly neutral reaction to Key's comments about spying with women tending to agree with him more than men.

There was also general disagreement when Cunliffe accused Key of not being "upfront" over a number of issues, though those reacting were not that happy with Key's response either.
