Palaszczuk government spends $528k on COVID-19 polling ahead of Queensland election

The Palaszczuk government has engaged in a spending spree gauging voter sentiment on borders and her coronavirus response as she continues her play for the AFL Grand Final ahead of Queensland's state elections.

Queensland's Labor government spent $528,000 on COVID-19 polling as well as hiring a political strategist to assist with the state's economic recovery, with border expected to be a key voting issue.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk pushed heavily for the AFL final to be held the weekend before the October 31 election, promising to spend millions on promoting the event.
