Three national polls have appeared over the past 24 hours, some of which already seem like old news. ReachTEL in particular is about to be superseded by the third such poll in consecutive days when Seven Sunrise reveals the results at 6am. The results from the three polls, together with state breakdowns from ReachTEL and Essential Research, have been thrown into the BludgerTrack mix. In turn:
The Galaxy poll has Labor at 35%, the Coalition at 45%, the Greens at 9% and the rampaging Palmer United Party on 5%, with the Coalition leading 53-47 on two-party preferred. Full results, including supplementary attitudinal questions, from GhostWhoVotes.
This morning’s ReachTEL automated phone poll of 3698 respondents had the Labor at 32.7%, the Coalition at 43.6%, the Greens at 10.0%, and the rampaging Palmer United Palmer up to 6.1%, a further strong improvement on the previous day’s poll.
Essential Research published an online poll of 1035 respondents conducted from Sunday to Wednesday showing Labor on 35% (the same result as the previous poll published on Monday), the Coalition on 43% (down one) and the Greens on 10% (steady). I’m told the Palmer United Party was on 4%, as it had been in Monday’s poll.
