A new opinion poll shows Queensland Premier Campbell Newman would probably lose his Brisbane seat if an election was held this weekend.
The Galaxy poll, commissioned by Channel Nine, surveyed 500 voters in Mr Newman’s Brisbane seat of Ashgrove.
It shows the LNP’s primary vote has dropped from almost 52 per cent at the March 2012 election to 41 per cent now.
Labor’s vote has improved from about 37 per cent to 43 per cent.
After preferences, Labor has a winning lead of 53 to 47 per cent.
Another Galaxy Poll this week showed a similar result across the state for the LNP.
The figures released today confirm that Mr Newman is in the same doubtful position as many of his colleagues in Parliament.
The survey found 44 per cent of voters were less likely to vote for the LNP because of the Government’s anti-bikie laws.
Opposition leader Annastacia Palaszczuk says she would like Kate Jones to run again in Ashgrove, but the former Labor MP has other things on her mind right now.
“We’ll be having more preselections over the coming months,” Ms Palaszczuk said.
“I’ve had preliminary discussions with Kate Jones of course, but I think Kate is due to have a baby within the week so we’ll let Kate concentrate on having her baby and then I’ll have a catch-up with her in the very near future.”
