Three out of four New Zealanders believe the upcoming "anti-smacking" referendum is a waste of money, a survey has found.

The Research New Zealand poll of 481 people found 77 per cent didn't support spending money on the non- binding referendum, which will cost $8.9 million.

Eighteen per cent felt it was a good use of taxpayer dollars while 5 per cent were unsure.

Where do you stand on political coat-tail riding?

If it gets marginalised voices into Parliament, I'm for it.

I'm against it - if you don't get the votes, you shouldn't be there.

It's just part of the political game.
