Coalition’s Budget Cash Splash Fails to Win Over Voters | Poll Position


The cash splash budget has failed to win over voters, with only 25% of poll respondents saying the budget has made them more likely to vote for the Coalition, and a further 19% say it has made them less likely. While the Morrison Government was hopeful the budget would deliver a bounce to carry the government into an election contest, now just days away, the positive political impact of the Coalition’s pre-election economic statement appeared to be negligible.
