Towards Consensus?: The 1993 Election and Referendum in New Zealand and the Transition to Proportional Representation
Jack Vowles, Peter Aimer, Helena Catt, Jim Lamare and Raymond Miller
Based on a nationwide survey of voters, this is a study of the historic 1993 New Zealand general election and referendum. It seeks to explain why New Zealanders made the choices they did – an extremely narrow majority for the National Party and a decision to shift to MMP representation.
. . . there is no doubt that Vowles is the most creative and insightful political statistician in this country. His polling work in 1996, for example, was scarily accurate. – Chris Trotter, Waikato Times
