Nearly half say ditch MMP

Nearly half of those polled by the Herald-Digipoll say they want to ditch MMP and I’d be one of them. Not that I want to go back to First Past the Post far from it.

The Herald-DigiPoll survey shows 49 per cent of respondents said they would vote to get rid of the controversial electoral system when it goes to referendum in 2011.

Only 35.8 per cent of those polled would vote to keep it, and 15.2 per cent did not know how they would vote.

My original preference was for STV but for the vast masses of thickies that we must support I think that it would too much of a stretch to change that far. Most still can’t cope with MMP.
