By | | comments |

Last weekend’s multi-mode weekly Morgan Poll shows support for the L-NP down 0.5% to 54.5% over the past week (since May 17-19, 2013), against the ALP 45.5% (up 0.5%) on a two-party preferred basis.


In other good news for the Government, their primary vote rose to 33.5% (up 1.5%), which is the highest Labor primary vote since mid-February.The increase came mainly from support for Independents/Others, which is down 1% to 11.5%. Greens support is also down 0.5% to 9.5%. The L-NP primary vote remained unchanged at 45.5%.

Special poll shows Palmer United has significant potential support

ClivePalmerIn addition, a special online MorganPoll conducted last week shows there is a significant amount of potential support for Clive Palmer’s new political party — the Palmer United Party (PUP). When Australian electors were asked whether they would consider voting for Palmer’s new Party, 16% said they would consider voting for PUP, 71% wouldn’t consider voting for PUP and 13% couldn't say.

Analysis by gender shows that men (19%) are more likely to consider voting for PUP than women (13%). Analysis by Federal voting intention shows that 17% of Liberal supporters would consider voting for PUP and 34% of National supporters, compared to only 9% of ALP supporters and 12% of Greens supporters. However, a very high 59% of Katter’s Australian Party supporters would consider voting for Palmer’s new Party.

(Note:  This multi-mode Morgan Poll on Federal voting intention was conducted over the last few days via Face-to-Face, Internet and SMS interviewing, May 24-26, 2013 with an Australia-wide cross-section of 3,493 Australian electors aged 18+, of all electors surveyed a low 1% (unchanged) did not name a party.)
