EMRS: Liberal 34, Labor 34, Greens 17 in Tasmania

An occasional Tasmanian state polling series finds the state’s Liberal government in dire trouble months out from its first bid for re-election.

The latest quarterly EMRS poll of state voting intention in Tasmania, conducted Friday to Tuesday from a sample of 1000, is a dire result for Will Hodgman’s government just four months out from an election. Liberal and Labor are both on 34% of the vote, which is three points down since August in the Liberals’ case, and unchanged in Labor’s. The Greens are up a point to 17%, and the Jacqui Lambie Network is up three to 8% since its debut showing in August. On preferred premier, Labor’s Rebecca White leads by 48% (steady) to 35% (down two). Lots more analysis from Kevin Bonham.
