Newspoll quarterly breakdowns: February-March 2017

Detailed Newspoll breakdowns find older voters, regional areas and Western Australians turning particularly heavily against the Turnbull government.

Share

If you’ll pardon me for being a day late with this one, The Australian has published the regular quarterly breakdowns of voting intention by state, age and gender (voting intention here, leadership ratings here), which suggest swings against the Coalition of 2% in South Australia, 3% in New South Wales and Victoria, 6% in Queensland and just shy of 8% in Western Australia. The demographic breakdowns are interesting in showing particularly strong movement against the Coalition among the older age cohort (down 10% on the primary vote, compared with 7% overall) and those outside the capital cities (down 9%, compared with around half that in the capitals). The polling was drawn from all of Newspoll’s surveying through February and March, with an overall sample of 6943.

Late as usual, below is BludgerTrack updated with last week’s Newspoll and Essential Research. The state breakdowns in BludgerTrack are a little compromised at the moment in using a straight average of all polling since the election to determine each state’s deviation from the total, and is thus understating the recent movement against the Coalition in Western Australia. As of the next BludgerTrack update, which will be an expanded version featuring primary votes for each state, trend measures will be used.

Stay tuned for today's Essential Research results, with which this post will be updated early afternoon some time.

UPDATE (Essential Research): Absolutely on change in this week’s reading of the Essential Research fortnight rolling average, with Labor leading 53-47 on two-party preferred, the Coalition leading 37% to 36% on the primary vote, the Greens on 10% and One Nation on 8%.

The poll includes Essential’s monthly leadership ratings, which have both leaders improving on last month – Malcolm Turnbull is up two on approval to 35% and down three on disapproval to 47%, and Bill Shorten is up three to 33% and down three to 46% – while Turnbull’s lead as preferred prime minister nudges from 38-26 to 39-28.

The government’s business tax cuts get the thumbs down, with 31% approving and 50% disapproving; only 20% believing the cut should extend to bigger businesses, with 60% deeming otherwise; and 57% thinking bigger business profits the more likely outcome of the cuts, compared with 26% for employing more workers.

On the question of whether various listed items were “getting better or worse for you and your family”, housing affordability, cost of electricity and gas and “the quality of political representation” emerged as the worst of a bad bunch.

    A Russian hacker arrested in Spain for hacking US Election.
    Spanish police have arrested a Russian programmer for alleged involvement in “hacking” the US election, Spanish press reports have said.
    Pyotr Levashov, arrested on 7 April in Barcelona, has now been remanded in custody.
    A “legal source” also told the AFP news agency that Mr Levashov was the subject of an extradition request by the US.
    The request is due to be examined by Spain’s national criminal court, the agency added.
    El Confidencial, a Spanish news website, has said that Mr Levashov’s arrest warrant was issued by US authorities over suspected “hacking” that helped Donald Trump’s campaign.
    Mr Levashov’s wife Maria also told Russian broadcaster RT that the arrest was made in connection with such allegations.

    Several cybersecurity experts, including Brian Krebs, have also linked Mr Levashov to a Russian spam kingpin, who uses the alias Peter Severa.

    By ‘turn against’, is that referring to simply changing their primary votes, or does it mean they’re preferencing Labor? Because if they’re still preferencing the Libs, it doesn’t change much.

    Boy, the Spanish security cordon around that Russian Hacker will have to be drum tight if he’s to make it to America alive. The Russians donm’t like their secrets being spilled. They’d rather spill blood to protect them from prying eyes.

    Bit of a beat up the guy is a spam artist.

    According to anti-spam group Spamhaus, Levashov is among world’s 10 worst spammers.
    The US Justice Department says that Levashov was the Russian partner of Alan Ralsky, who was later convicted for creating spam schemes designed to artificially inflate the value of penny stocks.

    An official of the US Justice Department told Reuters that it was criminal matter without an ‘apparent national security connection’.

    Interesting to look at the Qld poll numbers – actually worse for the Coalition than WA. Does Adani save or cost votes overall there? Even the young nationals (the under 50s) are supporting a carbon price, so there must be some damage being done.

    The removal of a ‘dictator’ often seems to lead to chaos.

    The north African nation is a major exit point for refugees from Africa trying to take boats to Europe. But since the overthrow of autocratic leader Muammar Gaddafi, the vast, sparsely populated country has slid into violent chaos and migrants with little cash and usually no papers are particularly vulnerable.

    So this is true. Coal dust into wetlands from Abbot Point coal storage. Restrictions are laughable.

    A vast swathe of the Caley Valley wetlands has been blackened by coal-laden water released from nearby Abbot Point port after Debbie’s torrential rains inundated its coal storage facilities last month.

    Satellite imagery of the coal spill last week prompted an investigation by the Queensland Department of Environment and Heritage Protection (EHP), which said the port operator appeared to have acted in line with a temporary licence to release the excess water.

    It’s either Adani or the Great Barrier Reef. Are we willing to fight for a wonder of the world?
    Jeff Sparrow
    Jeff Sparrow Read more
    The caveat was that the licence did not “authorise environmental harm”, an environment department spokeswoman said.

    Norm Duke, a principal research scientist at James Cook University’s TropWater unit and an expert in diagnosing contamination of wetlands, said an aerial image of the area showed “there’s undoubtedly going to be environmental harm”.

    “The image shows me a massive contamination of an area that I’m very familiar with,” Duke told Guardian Australia. “That’s not an area they should be dumping their stuff in.

    “I’m surprised (they were allowed to do so)– in some ways it would be almost better going into the sea rather than dropping it into somewhere it’s just going to cause long-term damage.”

    Duke, who has done extensive research on contamination of mangroves from oil spills, said he had “never seen anything as bad as this for coal dust”.

    The spread of coal dust over a “huge” area of the wetlands risked creating a “double whammy” of harm that would have dire implications for local flora and fauna, from fish and birds to molluscs and crabs, he said.

    Capitalism and protecting the environment are sadly incompatible.

    Many self managed funds already use their funds to purchases houses as investments. I seem to recall, that some time ago, these funds could also borrow to purchase these investments.

    I can see it is only a short leap to allow first home buyers to access their super to purchase a house.

    All this does is fuel the Ponzi scheme with more tears when the music stops.

    The poll found no change in first-preference votes on the previous week with the Coalition on 37%, Labor on 36%, the Greens on 10%, One Nation on 8%, Nick Xenophon on 3% and others/independents on 6%. The two-party-preferred vote was unchanged, with Labor leading the Coalition 53% to 47%.

    The approval ratings of both leaders improved marginally, though both remain in negative territory. Malcolm Turnbull’s net approval rating improving from minus 17 to minus 12 and Bill Shorten went from minus 19 to minus 13.

    There are far more jobs in renewables, as everybody knows, but future jobs seem to rank lower than existing ones. Labor defers to the unions, when what they should be proposing is sound policy to manage the transition. This was done effectively in Germany, with a much greater population of coal miners.

    Ugh, cricket is the worst!
    Pretty annoyed right now that Midnight Oil played a secret show about 10 minutes from my house last night and I didn’t hear about it. I used to think I was pretty hip, having worked in the entertainment industry for a few years. Apparently not anymore.

    You’re not Robinson Crusoe. It was very much word of mouth. I found out the night before at Ups & Downs. For once, nothing got out on social media beforehand as far as I know. Even the bar staff didn’t even know it was happening.

    I got there a bit after 2 and there was a few more people than usual but not too bad, but it started to fill up around then. I’ve gotta stress, it was all still a rumour at this point. I wasn’t sure until the guitars were unpacked (Moginie’s Gretsch and Rotsey’s Jazzmaster and Ricky 12 are kinda iconic). A mate then googled pics of the drum kit and found a match.

    They stopped letting people in around 3.30 I think (including my missus, who ended up giving up and going home). Even then, no-one was sure it was going to happen at all. They came on around 4.30 and played just under an hour. One encore and all done. I’m not that big a fan but man, it was awesome! The musical highlight if I have to pick one was Best of Both Worlds. The actual highlight was my 11 year old nephew in the front row, grinning from ear to ear, and scoring the setlist and a photo with Bones afterwards. I don’t think he’ll be forgetting it in a hurry.

    During the period Labor was last in power some pseph fact(oid) popped up about a government is cactus once they have had x amount of polls/months with support below a certain level. That 53/47 rings a bell but can anyone remember what the figure was and “are we there yet” ?

    Renewable energy production in South Australia has hit the state’s target almost eight years ahead of schedule.

    The Government’s target is for 50 per cent of the state’s energy to be supplied from renewable sources by 2025, and in the past year it has been reported 53 per cent of its energy has come from sun and wind-based sources.

    Essential up, no change from last week on primaries or TPP. So still 53-47.
