James J relates that a Galaxy Research poll of state voting intention in New South Wales, presumably to appear in tomorrow’s Daily Telegraph, has a surprisingly strong showing for the Baird government in view of its recent travails, with the Coalition leading Labor 55-45 on two-party preferred. This compares with 53-47 in the last such poll in May. The primary votes are 45% for the Coalition, 35% for Labor and 11% for the Greens. The poll was conducted on Wednesday and Thursday from a sample of 899. More to follow.
After a bruising couple of weeks at ICAC, a Galaxy poll brings some better news for the Baird government.
