Our Polls

No party a winner

There will be no party winners in the current Queensland election.

Given the talent on offer, that’s also what most voters are expecting, based on our virtual focus group of 311 Queenslanders who completed a 15 minute qualitative online survey between November 3 and 6.

Energy, equality and affordability become election issues

Our latest polling shows a number of new entrants in the list of important election issues, many of them issues that Labor has been running on heavily for a number of years. It also shows Labor winning the debate on housing affordability.


WA election preview

The WA election is between a government that is tired and an opposition that is not exactly fresh.


Hanson is Liberals' only chance in WA

Our first analysis of our polling on the WA election (download by clicking here 870kb) suggests that a change of government is on the way, although not by a lot. However, this could depend on the One Nation vote.

Our latest survey of 1020 Australians demonstrates broad support for the government’s ABCC Bill, but no support for an anti-union campaign. This is particularly relevant given the bill is likely to be voted on this week.

Best that has happened to WA, a return of an ALP Government & we need to win again in QLD.

Congrats to the WA ALP on a marvellous victory
 

ANZ Job Ads September 2011

The ANZ Job Ads Index for September shows a decline month-on-month and a deceleration in growth year on year. If you're wondering how this could be, it means that year-on-year only looks good because of the growth in the earlier part of the year.


A more likely Katter figure

"Win over Ashgrove voters? Can Do" according the the Brisbane Times and a poll by ReachTEL, meaning that Campbell Newman is likely to win Ashgrove with a substantial margin.


Polling question concocted to show Katter on 25%

A Galaxy poll reported in The Courier Mail yesterday said that Bob Katter's Australian Party could possibly score 25% of the vote at the next state election. The question is poorly worded and the result almost certainly wrong.


Home loan arrears

My colleague John Black has done some interesting analysis of home loan arrears which could go some way to explaining why Labor is in trouble in Queensland more than most other states - because it picks Queensland as a home arrears hotspot.
