ReachTEL: 51-49 to LNP in Queensland
As concerns over Campbell Newman’s capacity to retain his seat of Ashgrove intensify, another Queensland state opinion poll points to a huge but not-quite-decisive swing to Labor.

Palmer United is on 9.5 (-3.1).
This poll is not surprising. Undoubtedly Queenslanders feel tasered by Newman, Dumb Dumb and Sir Clive.
Sounds like the statewide poll announced on the 7 news. LNP primary was a little over 40% and Labor a touch more than 34%.

An exclusive 7News and Sunday Mail poll shows the LNP has managed to stop voters turning away from the Newman government. Geoff Breusch reports.]
Well perhaps people are waking up to the fact that Newman hasn’t really done much.
Early days though.
I wonder where half of the lost Palmer (3%) is going as it wasn’t picked up by any other parties listed.
Tail end of the 7 News item has a question on:
“Does the super decision make you more or less likely to vote for Palmer United Party at the next election?”
More likely 10.4%
Less likely 46.3%
No change 43.2%
I’d be surprised if voters were answering this question all that honestly.
That response to the super question seems to match the EMC polling on approval of super from a few years ago. People really like the idea of super and they don’t like the idea of adverse changes to it
