Australians are sceptical that bringing forward tax cuts in the October budget will stimulate the economy, while two-thirds of voters would prefer the Morrison government to support renewables rather than new gas plants, according to the latest Guardian Essential poll.
While voters in the survey continue to give the prime minister the thumbs up for his management of the pandemic, there is less enthusiasm for the general direction of the Coalition’s much-vaunted “gas-led recovery”, or for bringing forward tax cuts that benefit high-income earners.
According to the latest survey of 1,081 respondents, 61% of the Guardian Essential sample rates Scott Morrison’s handling of the coronavirus crisis as very good or quite good, which is up from 59% in the previous survey.
But only one in five people (21%) believe that tax cuts for higher income earners will be very effective as economic stimulus. A further 41% says the strategy will be moderately effective while 38% says it won’t be effective at all.
