Couldn't have said it better myself. From The Guardian, Friday 7 October:

New Zealand goes to the polls on 26 November for a general election, with the National party leading Labour by 27%, but a significant proportion of Kiwis have more interest in the World Cup. According to a recent poll, 30% of those surveyed said they placed more importance on who wins the World Cup than the result of the election. The figures make depressing reading for those worried about young people's lack of interest in politics: among the under-25s, 55% said they were more interested in the World Cup

Much as I despise ACT, I think it's very sad that wanting to take a sensible position on marijuana might be what kills them off. Their outright bigotry and racism never seemed to hurt their chances. What does this say about their supporters?

Who did they survey in this poll?!

Nobody I know gives a fuck about the rugby; everybody I know is pissed off at the government.
