Queensland Labor’s march through the polling wilderness continues with a new result of state voting intention from Galaxy.
GhostWhoVotes reports a Galaxy poll of state voting intention in Queensland has the LNP government’s two-party preferred lead at 57-43, up from a relatively weak 55-45 at the last such poll in February. The LNP is up a point on the primary vote since February to 44% while Labor is down two to 32%, with results for minor parties still to come. Campbell Newman’s lead over Labor’s Annastacia Palaszczuk as preferred premier is up from 52-31 to 55-29. UPDATE: The Greens and Katter’s Australian Party are both on 8%. Newman’s approval rating is up two to 44% and his disapproval is down two to 50%, while Palaszczcuk is down two to 33% and steady on 39%.
I also never got around to observing last month’s contentiously enormous ReachTEL poll conducted for the public service union Together Queensland, targeting no fewer than 36,000 respondents. You can pick through localised results breakdowns here.
UPDATE: And now there’s a ReachTEL poll to add to the Queensland glut, showing the LNP down 0.5% on last month to 44.6%, Labor down one to 28.2%, Katter’s Australian Party down 2.3% to 10.4%, the Greens up 1.3% to 9.0% and others up 2.4% to 7.8%. You can also find personal ratings and various attitudinal results here.
Queensland polling being as abundant as it is, I’ve made the effort to compile poll trends for all ReachTEL, Newspoll and Galaxy polling over the current term. Results are weighted so that the combined impact of the 11 results from ReachTEL is the same as the three each from Newspoll and Galaxy. Black represents the combined “others” vote – I have not treated Katter’s Australian Party separately as Newspoll seems to be having trouble measuring their support.
