How good/bad is the LNP polling in December 2014?

Steve Bishop asks in Independent Australia: ‘Why did the LNP lie to respected journalist Madonna King in October when it claimed that internal polling showed that Premier Campbell Newman had made a “spectacular personal comeback”? Recent polls make a mockery of the party’s claim, reported in the Brisbane Times, that the Premier’s “… shocking negative personal ratings [had] evened out.” ReachTEL found in April this year that 50% of respondents rated Mr Newman’s performance as poor or very poor. In December, this figure is 48.5%. Worse, Galaxy’s figures show that far from making a comeback, the premier is now viewed even more unfavourably. While 55% of people were disappointed or strongly disappointed with the Premier’s performance in May, that figure had climbed to 61% by November.’
