On Tuesday the Lowy Institute launched the 11th annual Lowy Institute Poll, which explores Australian attitudes towards issues such as climate change, the death penalty, and regional security.
The Poll was launched with an interactive, which allows you to explore results by category and examine trends over time. Key findings include:
- This year's Poll has recorded the lowest feeling of safety among Australians, and the sharpest decline in optimism about the nation's economic performance in the world, in our 11-year polling history.
- A majority (69%) see ISIS as a high risk to Australia's security, and 69% support Australia's military participation in Iraq, while only 20% think it makes Australia safer from terrorism in the future.
- The Poll has recorded the third consecutive rise in Australians' concern about global warming.
