Galaxy Lilley poll

Of all the seats in Queensland to poll, why in God’s name would you pick Lilley? That’s a question that can only be answered by Brisbane’s Sunday Mail newspaper, which commissioned Galaxy to survey the electorate held by Labor treasury spokesman Wayne Swan on a margin of 5.4 per cent. It shows Swan leading the Liberal candidate 59 per cent to 32 per cent, compared with 48.9 per cent and 41.2 per cent in 2004. No sample size is provided, which is rather poor form.
