Bean poll

Muffin Break actually make pretty good coffee - at least in my electorate where the barista has won an award or two. I`m an avid coffee drinker as many will know and Muffin Break is where I buy most of my fixes - well four out of every five as the fifth one is free.

The Bean Poll, which has been remarkably accurate in the previous two New Zealand elections and in Australia last year, allows customers at the 38 Muffin Break stores nationwide to vote - via coffee bean - for their preferred party.

It's latest bean poll has National ahead in every store but five. I`m in the Ohariau electorate and United Future is coming third. Funnily enough Labour is ahead at the Dunedin Hospital Muffin Break, indicating that that there are some pretty sick Labour supporters out there. So far 73,000 have cast their vote with the winner is the next Prime Minister who is going to get free coffee until the 2011 election.
Update Like all polls, you don't have to be on the electoral roll to cast your bean - you don't have to be 18, either.

The Bean Poll as it sits right now looks like predicting a Labour govt supported by the Greens, Jim A and the Maori Party. NZ First would only add to the party.

Nah your wrong,. you cant say that at all it has P/G/L/NZF on 47.5% and A/N/UF on 46.5% as well. The others are on 8% and that could be anything from Maori Party, Kiwi Party, Family Party and the mish mash of everybody else...

As the "others" hold the balance of power but we dont know of these parties what their vote percentage is.

I had to stop my eager 8 year old from voting in it just the other day.

For your stats, National is significantly ahead of Labour at the Henderson Muffin Break.
