The latest quarterly reading of state voting intention in Tasmania from EMRS has the Liberals down two points to 46%, Labor up two to 27%, and the Greens down two to 18%. Will Hodgman’s lead over Labor’s Bryan Green as preferred premier has narrowed from 56-19 to 52-21. Kevin Bonham, who would know better than me, reckons these “surprisingly harmless” results for the government come despite there have been “many reasons to suspect this poll could be a shocker”. The poll was conducted by telephone between last Friday and this Tuesday, from a sample of 1000.
Tasmanian pollster EMRS delivers state voting intention result that sources familiar with the matter consider surprisingly favourable for Will Hodgman’s Liberal government.
