A Queensland state poll finds support for Campbell Newman’s LNP government at a low ebb, and a significant drop in support for its bikies crackdown.
The Courier-Mail reports a Galaxy poll of state voting intention in Queensland has the Liberal National Party’s two-party lead down from 57-43 to 53-47 since the previous poll in November, and its primary vote down four points to 41%. The report also says Campbell Newman’s net approval rating is down from minus 6% to minus 13%, while Annastacia Palaszczuk goes backwards from plus 7% to neutral. Newman’s lead as preferred premier is down two points compared with a 46-33 lead last time. The poll also finds support declining for the government’s bikies crackdown, the number in favour down from 56% to 48% and opposition up from 37% to 45%.
Hopefully I’ll be able to fill the gaps in those numbers tomorrow, and we’ll also hopefully be seeing some results on federal voting intention as well. The poll was conducted late last week from the usual sample of 800.
UPDATE: Full results here. The BludgerTrack model reads the full gamut of seven Galaxy, five Newspoll and ten ReachTEL results over the current term like so (grey being “others”):
