What do Pasifika voters think of Jacinda Ardern?

From Morning Report, 6:41 am on 8 September 2017

Jacinda Ardern's leadership is energising voters across the country and in South Auckland where the Labour Party tends to poll well.

RNZ Pacific reporter Sara Vui-Talitu talks to shoppers at the markets in South Auckland.

“Polynesian communities have a tendency to vote red when they don't have anything else to vote for so I think the Jacinda mania has really amped up their hopes and stuff," Nathaniel from Grey Lynn says.

"And I think that is a good thing as change needs to come through, but at the same time they need to read up on their policies.”
