Lawrence Springborg-led LNP ahead of Labor in latest poll

The LNP has inched ahead of Labor in the latest Morgan poll, with the Opposition gaining three points in the last month.

Mike Baird and Daniel Andrews would easily win an election in their states if one was to be held tomorrow, but the pollsters show Queensland remains too close to call.

The SMS poll of 773 Queensland voters over the last week had the LNP ahead of Labor 51 per cent to 49 per cent, a three point increase for the Opposition since last month. Annastacia Palaszczuk remains the more popular leader, despite also losing three points, which Lawrence Springborg picked up, with Ms Palaszczuk’s lead as preferred premier now 59.5 points to 40.5 per cent.

But men and women rated Ms Palaszczuk higher than the LNP leader, while women were more likely to put Labor first compared to men.

The wash up with the independents and minor parties showed Katter’s Australian Party had grown in support by 1 per cent, taking their primary vote to 4 per cent of pollsters, while the Greens dropped .5 per cent to 11.5 per cent and Family First also gained three points to take first preference for 3.5 per cent.

Independents remain stable at 4.5 per cent
