Our Polls

The Labor loss in 2019

We conducted two polls during the election. The first poll was late in April, which you can access here, and the second on the day of the election up until midnight on the Monday after, which you can access here.

Our latest qualitative poll was conducted late in April, and we have just finished completely analysing the results. The results show some shift on the right with climate change  crossing the party divide as an issue.


NSW Election 2019 Online Poll

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.
