A poll by uComms has highlighted significant regional support for a ban on duck shooting.
The poll of 1031 regional and metro residents in early 2021, highlighted the majority support a ban, with the strongest support for a ban coming from regional Victoria.
The poll also showed:
Most holiday makers from metro areas would be put off holidaying in an area where there was shooting
Over 60% of both city and country respondents said they would feel unsafe undertaking other recreational activities where shooting takes place.
More voters would be more likely than less likely to vote Labor if duck shooting was banned
The premier is already viewed less favorably in regional areas than metro and his support of duck shooting paints him less favourably than favourably.
