Only 29% of Australians think political parties should be taxpayer funded

Recently we highlighted the dangerous proposal to give political parties more taxpayer dollars.

The proposal was abandoned once details become public and now we know why: only 29% of Australians support public funding of political parties.

The polling, conducted by Essential Vision, also shows that 47% of respondents – a plurality – think political parties should be entirely funded by voluntary donations. Among Coalition voters that figure was even higher at 53%.

Those most likely to support taxpayer funding of political parties are Greens voters (51%).
