The Australian has published a Newspoll of state voting intention three months out from the Queensland election, showing the Liberal National Party leading 51-49 on two-party preferred despite strong personal ratings for Annastacia Palaszczuk. The accompanying report tells us that Labor is on 34% of the primary vote, with the Greens on 12% and One Nation on 11% – all were are told for the LNP is that they are four points up on their 2017 election result, which was 33.7% (UPDATE: The tables show it at 38%). As compared with a YouGov Galaxy poll for the Sunday Mail in early June, conducted by the same company but published under different branding, this represents a one point gain for Labor on two-party preferred and two points on the primary vote, with the Greens steady, One Nation down one and the LNP, one gathers, steady.
Palaszczuk records a 64% approval rating, with the disapproval rating not provided in the report currently on the website (UPDATE: It’s 29%), and leads Opposition Leader Deb Frecklington 57-26 as preferred premier. Frecklington’s ratings are 34% approval and 42% disapproval. Palaszczuk scores 81% approval for her handling of COVID-19 compared with 80% for Scott Morrison – we are told Morrison is at 17% disapproval on this score, with no corresponding number provided for Palaszczuk (UPDATE: It’s 14%). There should be more detail available with the publication of the full tables later this evening.
UPDATE: Full results here. The poll was conducted Thursday to Wednesday from a sample of 1000.
