Bad news for Abbott, this Christmas after a poll conducted by The Australian Institute and ReachTEL, showed that voters in Warringah, the seat of deposed Prime Minister Tony Abbott, want him to retire at the next election and support renewable energy.
Executive Director of The Australia Institute, Ben Oquist, commented, “The polling indicates that the electorate is quickly moving on from the Tony Abbott era, Tony Abbott’s pugilistic style is looking increasingly out of touch. These results show Abbott’s own electorate want a refresh from that old style of politics. ”
The poll also showed the voters in Warringah were not just moving away from Abbott but were also moving Abbott’s stance on renewable energy. 77 percent of electors in Warringah support Australia transitioning to 100% renewables by 2030, including over 70 per cent of Liberal voters.
ReachTEL conducted for the TAI surveyed 743 residents across the federal electorate of Warringah during the evening of 17th December 2015.
