Our Polls

Neck and neck in June 2021

Our research might be best summed-up by saying that we wouldn’t want to be where Scott Morrison is now, but neither would we want to be where Anthony Albanese is either.

Exit poll Queensland 2020

This survey was designed to capture what people were thinking about the time they were casting their vote. We leave the survey open for the day of the election, plus two days afterwards.
