Galaxy: 59-41 to federal Coalition in Queensland

Galaxy follows up Saturday’s state poll with federal voting intention results for Queensland, painting the usual grim picture for Labor.

GhostWhoVotes reports the Galaxy poll of 800 Queensland respondents which gave us state results on Saturday now brings us federal results, indicating a 59-41 Coalition lead in the state from a swing of about 4%. This compares with a 55-45 result in the last such poll in February, which seemed a little favourable to Labor at the time. On the primary vote, Labor is down five to 28% and the Coalition is steady on 46%.

There has also been Queensland state polling over the weekend from Galaxy and ReachTEL, which you can read all about here.

UPDATE: Essential Research has Labor down a point on the primary vote to 34%, with the Coalition and the Greens steady on 48% and 8%. Two-party preferred is unchanged at 55-45. Other questions find Joe Hockey leading Wayne Swan as more trusted to handle the economy 37-28, out from 35-32 before the budget; 43% believing Tony Abbott should accept the Gonski reforms against 34% who favour the existing model; 51% saying climate change is caused by humans against 35% opting for normal fluctuation; support on opposition for carbon pricing tied at 43% all, the most favourable result yet recorded; 39% favouring it against 29% for the Liberals’ “direct action” policy (at least with respect to the policies as described in the question); and only 26% believing Tony Abbott will fulfill his promise to remove both the mining and carbon taxes while keeping the carbon tax compensation measures.

The weekly Morgan multi-mode poll has Labor up 1.5% to 33.5%, the Coalition steady on 45.5% and the Greens down half a point to 9.5%. Both respondent allocated and previous election two-party preferred measures have shifted from 55-45 to 54.5-45.5, providing further evidence that Morgan’s new methodology has resolved the inexplicable discrepancy between these measures which bedevilled the old face-to-face series (as well as its Labor bias).

    The history books will judge her as an excellent Prime Minister but a woeful politician.

    Pity.

    And herein lies the rub… acceptance of clever manipulation as ‘good’ and plain speak as ‘bad’. Tony Abbott is lauded as a great Opposition leader because he disrupts parliament for nothing more than his own end and successfully controls the media message regardless of truth. The fact that its all crap and lies and damages confidence is apparently beside the point. All hail the great politician Tony… who has never beaten Gillard on anything and presents the lesser policy position.

    Now I’m supposed to believe ‘it works like a tax’ is the greatest fuck-up of all time. Hello? Who sets these ridiculous parameters on what constitutes the better politician?

    Would anybody with a brain give this scenario any credence at all if the POLLS were reversed? Think about it. No, I didn’t think so.

    You’re all being played.

    Reckons that there was, in principle, a good side to Ridsdale.

    This appears to have escaped everyone except Pell.

    I was saying a few weeks ago that one of the reasons the Catholic Church allowed pedophile priests to escape punishment is because they subscribe to the progressive and christian idea that the perpetrators of crime are actually victims themselves and need to be loved not punished.

    I disagree with what you are saying, in part, but I accept that you do not hold that view yourself.

    People think that the reason the Catholic Church moved priests around and didn’t report their abuse to the police is because they were concerned about the damage to their image or were just evil and loved pedophilia or whatever.

    What I am saying is that the real reason they didn’t report pedophile priests is because they are infected by the christian and progressive delusion that criminals are victims too and need to be loved, not punished. “Hate the sin but love the sinner” is one way it gets put.

    This leads them to have a fundamental contempt for the justice system and for victims – their obsession is with the sinner, and the sinner’s relationship with God (“God”), not their relationship with the state, or the rights of the victim.

    The reason they didn’t punish the priests is because they loved them, and judgment is for God. That is how they think.

    ‘This leads them to have a fundamental contempt for the justice system’

    I have studied church history. The church has waged a two millenium-long struggle to try and maintain its own judicial system.

    The very fact that Pell is facing a secular enquiry represents a major FAIL by the Roman Catholic Church.

    Sorry Battle Turkeys, I can’t agree. In my view the Church protected the priests to save its reputation – it is an old boys club. More often than not the church vilified the complainant.

    They are almost all progressives. Just look at the current pope! People see their attitudes towards abortion or homosexuality and wrongly assume this means they are “conservative”. In reality their conservatism is confined to a few very small areas.

    That is how it was, but it is not how they saw it.

    No progressive would stand for it.

    I am not being funny when I say this BW, but progressives will stand for an awful lot when it comes to crime and siding with the perpetrator over the victim. They are quite famous for it. Not all the tabloid headlines are made up.

    Nice bit of news from The Newman Govt.

    Households should now expect annual increases to power bills of about $365 under a new pricing model that comes with higher fixed daily charges.

    This also means that having solar panels on your roof means you save next to nothing.

    Ballistic talkback condemning Newman on radio.
