A ReachTEL state poll for Queensland finds a slight improvement for the Liberal National Party, although the gain comes at Palmer United’s expense rather than Labor’s.
The Sunday Mail reports a ReachTEL automated phone poll of “almost 1900” respondents gives Campbell Newman’s Liberal National Party government one of its better results of recent times, with the LNP’s 41.0% primary vote up from 38.7% at a similar poll a month ago, and equal to where it was another month before that. The gain comes at the expense of the Palmer United Party, which over the three monthly polls has gone from 13.6% to 15.4% to 12.6%. Labor has been all but unchanged across the three months, its latest result being 34.4%. The change on two-party preferred is accordingly rather slight, with the LNP lead up from 51-49 to 52-48. Further detail should be forthcoming on the minor party vote, Campbell Newman’s personal support and opinion of asset sales.
