New Plymouth mayoralty poll

Stuff reports:

New Plymouth looks to have a true mayoral race on its hands, with challenger Andrew Judd edging ahead of incumbent Harry Duynhoven in a poll taken this week.

In the random telephone survey of 477 New Plymouth voters, 20 per cent supported Mr Duynhoven, while his main challenger, businessman and current councillor Andrew Judd, secured 23 per cent.

The poll indicated Hamilton-born businessman Craig Percy and local man Chris Wilkes, who is standing on an environmental platform, were outsiders in the race, with two per cent and one per cent of support respectively.

But it’s early days and 53 per cent of those who took part in the Taranaki Daily News poll were either undecided or ambivalent about the election.

The poll had a 70 per cent response rate and a margin of error of 4.47 per cent.
