Conflicting polls on if Kiwis want America's Cup defended on home soil

A poll commissioned by Team New Zealand shows that 3/4 of Kiwis do not want the cup defended here in New Zealand if it costs the taxpayer more money.  

This poll contradicts the one from Mark Dunphy, which puts the opposition to extra taxpayer funding at only 45% with us now as a UTI.  

Sailing commentator Mark Orams doesn’t put much credence in either poll.
