As people think about potentially voting early, with polls now open, the CFM survey conducted last week has National leading the race with 28 percent of the Coromandel electorate party vote, ACT being 11 percent behind.

Our survey has National dropping 7 percent on the last election result, Labour has fallen from 29 percent to 13 percent.

Sitting Coromandel Member of Parliament, Scott Simpson, leads the electorate vote with 40 percent of the poll.

The key issue on the minds of the 342 people who completed the recent CFM pre-election survey is the cost of living. Seven options were provided to survey participants, roading was the second area of concern.

Crime and medical facilities on the Coromandel Peninsula shared third, social division and education being fifth and sixth. Surprisingly as it may seem, climate change rated seventh.

Over 90 percent of those who completed the survey were enrolled to vote in the Coromandel electorate, 3.2 percent in the Hauraki-Waikato Māori electorate.

Were we better off last week than a months ago, a massive 61 percent responded no, 26 percent believed there was no change, and 12 percent believed their situation had improved.
