Voters apparently suck:
The Government’s decision to temporarily suspend processing of asylum applications from Sri Lankans and Afghans has attracted strong support from voters, new polling from Essential Research shows.
A massive 69% of voters support the decision, compared to only 15% who oppose it; 39% of voters “strongly support” it.
A majority of my countrymen and women support imprisoning people without trial indefinitely, do you? Why? Because you think the tiny proportion of immigrants that arrive by boat are somehow a national emergency?
What have I told you about believing anything News Ltd prints?
Even many Greens voters suck:
In any event, the Essential data shows that, contrary to the stereotype of middle class trendies, even Green voters back the Government on the issue — 47% of Green voters approved or strongly approved of the decision compared to 42% who oppose or strongly oppose it.
What the hell are you people thinking? How can you have bought this fatuous, inhumane scare campaign AGAIN?
