EMRS has the Tasmanian Liberals with a thumping albeit slightly diminished lead, and shows a substantial drop in support for the Greens.
The quarterly EMRS poll of Tasmanian state voting intention has Labor on 28%, up five on a disastrous result from February, with the Liberals down a point to 54%. The poll also shows the Greens down four to 14%, which is well below anything I recall seeing for the Greens from this series in the past. Liberal leader Will Hodgman’s lead over Premier Lara Giddings is little changed, at 46-25 compared with 46-24 in February.
