I think most people here just don't give a crap, Maori or Pakeha. There are a lot more important issues to sort out down here. Child poverty and education along with the growing gap in incomes would come way higher on the list then removing a figurehead queen who lives the other side of the world.
Most Maori that I know simply recognise their own Iwi leader as their actual family leader or some align to the Maori King, the crown to date has been pretty reasonable with land claims and resource repatriation so there doesnt seem a huge nationalistic sentiment amoungst most that i've met.
Hone Harawira would be a differnet story A political leader that asked "Would you be comfortable with your Maori daughter coming home with a Pakeha boy?" Not someone that holds the majorty support but I guess he shows there are some out there that support his views as he keeps getting a trickle of votes.
