A new exit poll for the Queensland election has found the Coalition leading by just six points.
The poll, conducted by Ipsos Reid, shows the ALP’s seat of Wollongong with an 8.6 per cent swing, down one point from the last poll.
Labor’s seat in the state’s north has also slipped to a five-point swing.
With the results of the poll, which is not considered reliable, the ALP has won just 10 of the state s 34 seats.
But Mr Abbott has still maintained a commanding lead, with a whopping 61 per cent of the vote to Labor’s 25 per cent.
In the last fortnight, Mr Abbott and his team have used a number of tactics to try and increase their lead, including the use of a number at the end of the campaign that made the exit poll appear more accurate.
“A lot of the media, and even people who don’t support Mr Abbott, are really trying to use this as a scare tactic,” Mr Anderson said.
And while the polls show Mr Abbott with a commanding majority in the election, the exit polls suggest that there may be a few more voters who are undecided about which party they will vote for. ABC/AAP
