From , 3:04 pm on 4 September 2018

With two months to go until the referendum on independence, an overwhelming majority of New Caledonians wants to stay with France.

A poll on the issue was carried out by Quidnovi, which is the New Caledonian branch of KANTAR TNS, and published by the blog La Depeche de Nouvelle Caledonie.

Walter Zweifel looked at the findings and Don Wiseman asked him how strong the opposition to independence is.
