Q: If the Labor Party was elected into Government at the next election, do you think they would keep the Coalition Government’s policy on asylum seekers arriving by boat or do you think they would change the policy?

Would keep the policy 28%   38% 27% 30% 26%
Would change the policy 38%   26% 54% 29% 46%
Don’t know 34%   36% 20% 41% 28%

38% think that if the Labor Party is elected, they would change the Coalition Government’s policy on asylum seekers and 28% think they would keep the Coalition policy.

More than half the Liberal/National voters think Labor would change the Coalition policy.
