|Maybe Uranium should be left in the ground|
The Queensland government intends to ask the people what they think about lifting the state ban on uranium mining, so we decided we'd help them out and posted our weekly poll on just that subject.
No doubt they will get more than the 497 responses that we did, but I like to think we get quality as well as quantity.
There is obviously a lot of Greens interest in this. When you look at our sample by voting intention the figures are:
To put the figures into perspective the Greens received 7.53% of the vote at the last state election, the Australian Party 11.53%, Labor 26.6% and LNP 49.66%.
So, to get a better idea of where support for lifting the ban might lie I adjusted our results to reflect voting intentions at the last election and put them into the table below alongside the sample results. I reckon that support for lifting the ban therefore lies somewhere between 36% and 48%, while opposition lies between 56% and 43%.
Support or opposition for the proposition by party was:
That's enough tables. I'll do a second post to run through the qual, which is where all the gold, as well as the uranium, is.
