The Australian: 7 November 2022
Seat-by-seat polling suggests the NSW Coalition is in danger of losing several electorates to teal independents at the March election, with the primary vote of Environment Minister James Griffin perilously low, leaving him at significant risk of being bundled out of parliament.
Undertaken by the Redbridge Group on behalf of Climate 200 and obtained by The Australian, the automated phone survey of 750 respondents indicates Mr Griffin’s primary vote is at 31%, leaving him in considerable risk of losing his seat of Manly on Sydney’s northern beaches.
… The polling represents a dire situation in the northern beaches seats of Wakehurst and Pittwater – areas encompassed within electorates held by federal teal independents Ms Steggall and Mackellar MP Sophie Scamps. With the recent retirement of senior ministers Brad Hazzard and Rob Stokes, polling has the primary vote of an independent with perceived credentials on climate action, pro-business and integrity at 33 per cent in Wakehurst, and up to 37 per cent in Pittwater.
