A new Morgan poll shows that for the first time, less than half of Australians -- 46%, down 4% since November -- approve of the government's proposed CPRS.

An increasing number of Australians, 36% (up 5%) of Australians disapprove of the proposed legislation; although 5% (up 3%) say "it doesn’t go far enough", 14% (up 3%) don’t understand the legislation and 4% (down 4%) can’t say.
