Polling: National Political Issues
The Australia Institute surveyed nationally representative samples of over 1,000 Australians each month from August about what they think the most important national political issue is right now.
- In every month, more Australians identified the economy as the most important national political issue than any other issue (between 37% and 48%).
- Health was second-most likely to be identified as most important in every month, but has steadily declined from 35% in August to 23% in December.
- Climate change was third-most likely to be identified as most important, and has steadily increased from 7% in August to 13% in December.
