SUPPORT FOR LNP DROPS TO NEW LOW

Support for the LNP has dropped to a new low despite a lift in the personal standing of Campbell Newman. The LNP and Labor are locked at 50-50 per cent support on a two-party-preferred basis. This represents a significant improvement since the March 2012 election when Labor support was just 37.2%.
