Poll reveals Qld would vote out LNP today
A NEW poll has revealed if a Queensland election was held today the LNP would follow its Victorian counterparts and be consigned to the history books as being a one-term government.
But the poll also revealed voters were not overly satisfied with Labor.
The ReachTel poll, commissioned on behalf of 7 News and News Limited, showed Premier Campbell Newman was less popular in regional Queensland than he was overall.
Deputy Premier Jeff Seeney continued to be popular among voters with 18.1% of those surveyed in regional Queensland saying he would be a good premier just ahead of Health Minister Lawrence Springborg on 17%.
On a two-party preferred basis, Labor leads the LNP 51% to 49% and 51.7% of the 1480 people surveyed said the LNP had not done enough to warrant a second term in government.
However, 51.1% of those surveyed, 54.1% of those in regional areas, also said Labor had not done enough in opposition to warrant being elected into government at the next state election.
Overall 50.8% believed the LNP would win the next election regardless of their own voting intentions with the figure jumping to 54.6% among those who were surveyed in regional Queensland.
The Palmer United Party's popularity continues to plummet with only 6.5% of those surveyed saying they would vote for the fledgling political party - a far cry from the 13.6% it registered in June this year.
Mr Newman refused to comment on the poll when asked about it in Mareeba where the final Community Cabinet of the year is being held.
