Majority Of Victorians Believe Daniel Andrews Has Done A Good Job During Covid-19 Second Wave

Majority Of Victorians Believe Daniel Andrews Has Done A Good Job During Covid-19 Second Wave

A majority of Victorians believe Premier Daniel Andrews has weathered the state's coronavirus second wave well.

Victoria has been in the grips of a deadly and fast spreading second wave that has caused hundreds of deaths and thousands to be infected.

It struck just after the first wave had finished and has caused businesses to close their doors, while people have been told to stay in their homes.

But this time round, people were forced to remain indoors during the night from 8pm to 5am and exercise and grocery shopping were limited to once a day.

There has been a lot of discontent brewing in Victoria as a result of the restrictions, however it appears most residents believe Mr Andrews had led the state in the best way he could.

A poll by The Australian found 62 percent of voters backed the Premier in his handling of the second wave. Conversely, there were 35 percent of Victorians who reckon he's handled the situation poorly.

When the poll was opened up to the rest of Australia, it largely came back with the same results. Just over 60 percent of voters, which includes 57 percent of Coalition voters, say the lockdown restrictions were appropriate.

In the same poll, it appears Mr Andrews' Queensland counterpart has fared the same.

Despite copping a load of flak, Annastacia Palaszczuk's handling of the coronavirus has been backed by 68 percent of her voters. While that's a drop from 81 percent in July, it's still a decent standing to have.

People in Victoria and Queensland also back Prime Minister Scott Morrison's handling of the pandemic.

The percentage of people who were worried about the effect restrictions were having on the economy has risen from 20 percent in July to 39 percent.

However, 56 percent of people are worried that opening up the state too quickly will risk spreading the virus.
