WTV-Trace Chinese Political Poll Aug 2017
A letter from Associate Professor Richard Brookes to the editor at New Zealand Herald.
"Labour MP Raymond Huo’s personal criticism of the recent WTV-Trace Research online poll of Chinese voters is unfounded. As a colleague of Dr Andrew Zhu, I am familiar with the poll and results, and can attest to his integrity and professionalism in the way the survey was conducted, how the results were weighted for representativeness purposes, and how they were also analyzed and reported. I therefore believe the findings are a fair assessment of the current political views and voting intentions of eligible Chinese New Zealand voters. Rather that trying to ‘shoot the messenger’, I suggest that Mr Huo should instead try to listen to the messages coming from these voters, and as reported in the recent survey."
"I believe that Mr Huo can be
accused of trying to discredit this work via innuendo, and without providing
any evidence, for example, when he claims: 'Allegations have been made
that this poll either does not comply with the Research Association of New
Zealand's political polling code or if it does, may not be robust enough to
prevent it from some systemic abuse.'
"I also believe that a reason why Mr Huo may have tried to discredit this work is that the research does portray the 'voice' of Chinese New Zealand voters, and that voice, if turned into a high voter turnout, could have a telling impact on the final elections results, especially in Auckland. That's a strength of our MMP democratic voting system, and I hope that all Chinese New Zealand voters feel confident enough to demonstrate this."

Dr Jian Yang said he was pleased to see strong support from the Chinese community.
"We work hard to ensure Chinese people have a voice in National, and we're constantly focused on the issues that matter to them," said Yang.
"We never take the Chinese community's support for granted...for me, every year is an election year."
National's Chinese MP Jian Yang said the Government was "very focused" on both public safety and housing.
"We have committed over $500 million in this budget to increase the numbers of police staff by 10 per cent, or 1125 people," he said.
"With regards to housing, we are intervening in the market, with demand measures like the bright-line test and LVRs, and supply measures like the Housing Infrastructure Fund, special housing areas, Government building programmes and requirements on councils to make land available for housing."
Yang said these measures had already resulted in big increases in housing construction, and house prices in Auckland being flat to falling over the last eight months.
New Zealand First leader Winston Peters believed a growing number of Chinese voters were connecting with its party policies.
"They see the need for a common-sense approach to issues," Peters said.
"It's in the Chinese character to understand long term planning, and oppose the consequences of shortsighted quick fixes."
Peters said many Chinese immigrants came from successful economies like China, Taiwan, Singapore and Hong Kong, or were familiar with them.
"They are beginning to note the similarity of NZ First's policies with those economies," he said.
"Their voting demographic is changing and they can recognise puffery and propaganda more quickly than most."
Labour's Raymond Huo said the poll showed many Kiwi Chinese voters placed "high value on incumbency".
"Many Kiwi Chinese who are from non-parliamentary backgrounds may not perceive political issues in the same way as other New Zealanders because their ideas of incumbency are culturally entrenched," Huo said.
"Our focus will be to present Labour policy in the most effective way and to encourage Kiwi Chinese people to participate in the nation building process as New Zealand residents and citizens."
