Liberals heartland rejects PM’s company tax and renewable agenda

The Australia Institute (February 2017). New polling conducted by ReachTEL for The Australia Institute of the electorates represented by Malcolm Turnbull and Tony Abbott reveals strong opposition for cutting the tax rate, particularly for larger companies. Both electorates registered more support for increasing the company tax rate than cutting it. In the Prime Minister’s electorate of Wentworth 43% supported an increase of company taxes, 33% supported a cut and 14% said keep rates the same.
There was high support for cutting the tax rate for small companies (46%), but only 17% support for a cut for all businesses in Wentworth and 20% in Warringah.
