The carbon laws: public polling on repeal

Law Climate change Power resources Elections Australia

This factsheet summarises the key findings of an opinion poll on the potential repeal of Australia's carbon laws.


Recent national polling shows that there is no support for the claim that the Federal election is a ‘referendum on the carbon laws’. It also shows that more Australians oppose a double dissolution on the laws than support one.

The findings come from a nationally representative JWS Research online poll of 1,009 Australians, conducted 1-7 June 2013, and commissioned by The Climate Institute.
