Nearly half think Joyce should go: poll

February 15, 2018

Almost half of voters in New England believe Barnaby Joyce should resign or sit on the backbench.

Nearly half of voters in Barnaby Joyce's electorate believe the deputy prime minister should resign from parliament or sit on the backbench.

As Mr Joyce faces pressure over his extra-marital affair with a former staffer, 40 per cent of the 1206 New England voters surveyed in the ReachTEL poll commissioned by Fairfax Media also said they were less inclined to vote for him.

But one-in-four said they would be "more likely" to vote for him following the revelations about the relationship.
