The latest Newshub-Reid Research poll shows about 48 percent – almost half the country – doesn’t support the reforms. Just 27 percent support it, and another 25 percent are undecided.
Some people just don’t get it. Here’s a hint – Three Waters is not still, sparkling or tap. It’s drinking, waste and stormwater – and the Government wants to take away council control of them.
Three Waters doesn’t even float the boat of the majority of Labour voters. The poll found that 40 percent of them agree with it, while a third – 30 percent – don’t, and 31 percent are unsure.
When only four in ten of your own party’s voters support it, and barely one in four Kiwis overall, they are going to lose a lot of votes if they proceed.
