Galaxy: 51-49 to federal Labor in Queensland

A Queensland-only federal poll by Galaxy lands well in line with the broader trend in pointing to a formidable swing of 8% to Labor.

Today’s Sunday Mail in Queensland publishes federal voting intention figures from the Galaxy poll that produced the state results you can read about in the post immediately below this one. The federal results are broadly similar to the state ones, and likewise in alignment with the current Queensland reading of BludgerTrack, in crediting Labor with a two-party lead of 51-49, which represents an 8% swing compared with the 2013 election result. The primary votes are 41% for the Coalition (compared with 45.7% in 2013), 37% for Labor (29.8%), 10% for the Greens (6.2%) and 3% for Palmer United (11.0%). The poll also provides a second encouraging personal result for Bill Shorten following his improved rating in last weekend’s Ipsos poll, with 40% rating him the federal leader with the “best plan for Queensland” compared with 34% for Tony Abbott – a question that produced a 42-40 split in favour of Abbott when last posed in the wake of the budget in May. The poll had a sample of 800 respondents, and was presumably conducted late in the week.

  1. Happiness

    [Not to mention nearly every blogger here probably supported him then and would have been telling everyone how stupid they were if they weren’t going to vote for Latham.

    ….just as they did for Rudd
    …then Gillard
    …then Rudd
    …and now they do for Shorten]

    Lucky so many conservative commentators warned us what a disaster Abbott would be as PM.

    Not sure why…but I just can’t remember any of their names.

  2. I’d say murdoch has jumped – the newspoll has come out earlier than bad polls usually do, and the reporting is forensic and unhelpful to abbott. they’re not even trying to put sheen on the turd.

  3. I understand that French visitors love being photographed in front of Grocon signs, because it means fat vagina (correct me if I’m wrong)
