Tax Cut Changes Have Done Little To Change Voters’ Political Views


While 62% of survey respondents support the changes to the stage 3 tax cuts, the move has not impacted support for the government in either direction, according to the latest Newspoll in The Australian. The two-party preferred support remains steady at 52% to 48% in favour of the government. Albanese’s preferred PM lead was also unchanged at 56% to opposition leader Dutton’s 35%.

  • Labor’s primary support rose 1pp to 34% at the expense of the Greens on 12%. The Liberals remain ahead on 36%. Independents and minor parties were unchanged on 11%. The poll was taken between January 31 and February 3.
  • Only 38% said that they would benefit from the tax cut changes and 29% said the tax plan should have been left unchanged. The first test of the electorate’s opinion on the revised tax cuts and the PM’s integrity given the changes will be on March 2, the Dunkley by-election.
