The Sunday Mail has published a startling Galaxy poll showing the Liberal National Party with a crushing 59-41 lead over Anna Bligh’s Labor government. On the primary vote, which is particularly important under Queensland’s optional preferential voting system, the LNP leads 48 per cent to 31 per cent, with the Greens on 13 per cent. Bligh’s approval rating is down four points to a parlous 28 per cent, and she now trails Opposition Leader John Paul Langbroek as preferred premier 42 per cent to 37 per cent. As always, this Galaxy poll had a sample of 800 respondents and a margin of error of around 3.5 per cent. The following chart shows the progress of Galaxy’s regular polling in Queensland since the March 2009 election.
