Consumer Confidence highest for L-NP supporters

Market Research Update – Page: Online : 22-Jul-20

New research into the weekly ANZ-Roy Morgan Consumer Confidence Index shows L-NP supporters have far higher Consumer Confidence in June at 103.3 than either ALP supporters (91.8) or Greens supporters (85.9). In fact, the Consumer Confidence of L-NP supporters has been consistently higher than either ALP or Greens supporters over the last year following the unexpected victory of the L-NP at last year’s Federal Election. Consumer Confidence for supporters of all three parties bottomed during the height of the national lockdown in April but the lowest Consumer Confidence for L-NP supporters, of 87.3 in April, was still higher than for Greens supporters during either of the last two months in both May and June. Consumer Confidence for ALP supporters hit a low of only 73.0 in April, lower than for supporters of either the L-NP or Greens. L-NP supporters have consistently been more confident than both ALP and Greens supporters across all five indicators of the index. The biggest contributors to the higher L-NP scores relate to views on the Australian economy and whether now is a good or bad time to buy major household items.

ANZ-Roy Morgan Consumer Confidence dropped 0.9pts to 90.7 this week – and is now at its lowest for over two months since May 9/10, 2020 (90.3).

Consumer Confidence in Adelaide (92.8) and Sydney (91.0) was also down, although both are slightly above the national figure. Perth is the most confident city in Australia with Consumer Confidence surging 7.3pts to 103.4 as the city welcomed the AFL and football crowds back on the weekend. Consumer Confidence is now 25.6pts lower than a year ago on the comparable weekend of July 20/21, 2019 (116.3) and 4.1pts below the 2020 weekly average of 94.8.
