A new poll conducted on May Fourth and Fifth by Roy Morgan has shown that support for an elected president stands at only 45% across Australia. Support for the Monarchy stands at 42% in general; more importantly than this, the generation of 14-17 year-olds show an amazing 64% support for the Monarchy.
The Poll question was:
"All Australians aged 14 and over were asked: “In your opinion, should Australia remain a MONARCHY — or become a REPUBLIC with an elected President?”
Naturally enough, the Republican movement has already started criticising Morgan and the poll. It is worth noting that Morgan is considered to have a rather left wing bias.
