Auckland University politics researcher Lara Greaves says the country isn't as divided as it might seem right now. 

She told Mike Hosking the long-term trend suggests we aren't becoming any more polarised. 

“We’re not really seeing that pulling apart, we’re not seeing that effect of polarisation that you’re seeing in other countries and quite a few studies have looked at this now and compared this internationally.”
