- Only 30% of voters rated MMP as difficult or very difficult to understand but:
- 48% failed to list the Party Vote as deciding the number of MPs
- 70% failed to list either winning 5% of the Party Vote or winning one electorate as being required to cross the threshold
- Males, those with a University degree, and those with a higher income level were more likely to answer correctly. These results are consistent with my work on the 2005 NZES survey.
