Federal Coalition MPs deny Tony Abbott’s unpopularity will hurt Campbell Newman’s re-election bid

‘Federal Coalition MPs from Queensland have denied the Federal Government’s unpopularity will be a drag on their state LNP counterparts in the run-up to this month’s state election. The recent poor polling of the Abbott government was considered one factor in the Coalition’s loss in the Victorian state election in November. Queensland Premier Campbell Newman’s fortunes have changed since he led the party to a landslide victory in 2012, with polls indicating the LNP is now neck-and-neck with Labor.’ (ABC News, 7.1.15)
