One bendigo east candidate no surprise to doyley
The last Queensland state election result is an indication of things to come, says David Parker.
Since Labor won power in 2013 the state has been on an upturn with more people voting Labor then not.
A new Ipsos poll, conducted on November 1, puts Labor’s lead in Queensland at 39 points, including 44 per cent who would choose to return the state to a mixed government arrangement.
But the same poll shows Labor on 39 per cent support, up one percentage point on two weeks ago.
In South Australia, the state’s biggest state poll, Mr Abbott is running a distant sixth.
But state Labor leader Barry O’예스 카지노Sullivan expects the federal government’s handling of the crisis i출장n asylum seeker boats to be decisive in deciding whether the state returns to a mixed government.
In other regional states, the rise of the anti-coal party has also changed the contesting electoral complexion.
Federal Labor is holding a 10-point lead in Victoria over the Greens, but the Greens’ support has grown by six points over the same period.
Meanwhile in Tasmania, where the federal Coalition is still the largest party, the Greens are still on 28 per cent support, up one point since the recent poll.
Despite a strong showing in the seat of Tully, which is currently held by National with only 3에스엠 카지노0 of the state’s 100 seats accounted for, the Greens appear to have lost ground and Mr O’Sullivan says the same holds true in both Queensland and Western Australia.
The state polls show that even if the party does return to power, its popularity will be at risk.
