DAVID SEYMOUR COMFORTABLY AHEAD IN EPSOM POLL
A recent poll conducted of 750 voters (+/- 3.5% margin of error), in the Epsom electorate shows incumbent Epsom MP and ACT Party Leader, David Seymour, ahead with a strong 16-point lead.
When asked “With your electorate vote, which of these candidates would you vote to be the electorate MP for Epsom”, David Seymour led on 46 per cent of decided voters, with National’s Paul Goldsmith on 30 per cent, and both Labour’s David Parker and Green’s Julie Ann Genter* following on 11 per cent.
“I am heartened by today’s result,” said David Seymour, “it has been a tremendous privilege to represent the people of Epsom in Parliament over the last three years. Epsom voters understand the critical role they play to ensure a stable centre-right government by continuing to give me their electorate vote"
“While this is a positive starting point for the campaign, we will not be taking the support of Epsom for granted. I am an approachable and effective local representative, ensuring stable centre-right government in Wellington.”
“This poll result is important, as it shows that every party vote for ACT will count. Only a Party vote for ACT will keep Winston Peters out of power and ensure a stable centre–right government for the next three years."
*Since the poll was conducted, the Green Party have nominated Barry Coates as the Epsom candidate.
