Galaxy: 64-36 to federal Coalition in Queensland

GhostWhoVotes relates that tomorrow’s Courier-Mail will carry a poll of 800 Queensland respondents (producing a margin of error of 3.5%) which puts the Coalition’s lead in the state at 64-36. This is less bad for Labor than the spectacular 68-32 in the Queensland component of last week’s Nielsen result, but quite a bit worse than the 58-42 in the January-March geographic breakdown from Newspoll (which was mostly conducted before Labor’s post-leadership challenge downturn). Galaxy has Labor at 23% of the primary vote, the Coalition at 56% and the Greens at 11%, compared with 18%, 56% and 11% in Nielsen. The poll has support for the carbon tax at 25% and opposition at 72%, respectively down four and up five since November.

    Abbott by contrast is conservative but not free market which makes him perfect. Hits all the right values tones in the state. Engages the alligator brain

    This says it all about Qld, and says it all about which state in the coalition really runs the show.

    In a way it pleases me; Qld is not the mainstream, so if the coalition want to go after them they are welcome.

    Let’s make this clear: Gillard is no longer percieved to be a liar. To the people who have turned away from the ALP, she IS a liar.

    This is a firm belief/judgement, not a perception.

    This isn’t because Abbott is some sort of political genius. He is nothing of the sort

    This is because Gillard and her staff have made media error after error after error and it’s added up to how things are now.

    I am no Labor foot soldier. I vote Green. I just recognise what the media is doing to Labor. This is a media that has within it those that openly say they are going to campaign for the destruction of the Greens at the ballot box. That is the carbon price in particular. Labor has copped it for supporting that.

    The media have their agenda but if you’re the ALP, it’s your job not to give them an inch.

    and Gillard has given them inch, after inch, after inch.

    Calling the price on carbon a policy that functions like a carbon tax was the stupidest thing that could’ve possibly been done.

    “We are us” … what the hell is that supposed to mean (and that’s when things were beginning to fall into place).

    Australia Day: could’ve been a big win for her but instead her staffer had to foolishly get in the way and it blew up in her face.

    4 Corners on Rudd. Why on earth would you give an interview where you’re just going to bring up all the feelings around July 24th?

    “A line has been crossed” … what line, what does that even mean? What she should’ve made clear is that she will not allow the public’s perceptions of the parliament to be held to such a poor standard

    At the ACTU conference she told that “I fight for Gillard” story, completely misreading the context of what it was about.

    This isn’t the media’s fault, this is the PM and her staff’s fault and I think she’d accept that as well.

    Yes, there the PM has navigated the hung parliament brilliantly and got through an extremely complex legislative agenda, but her skills in dealing with the media have been horrific
