Victoria’s most comprehensive poll on coronavirus from The Age and 9News

The Age and 9News have joined forces for exclusive polling to gauge the opinions ofeveryday Victorians as to how our state has handled the coronavirus crisis.

In the most comprehensive poll conducted since the virus hit in March, the results paint a fascinating insight into our collective mindset when faced with a once-in-a-lifetime pandemic.

Despite suffering a devastating second wave, Victoria has managed to squash the curve, arguably more effectively than any other jurisdiction in the world.

But the journey to achieve this suppression of the virus has dealt a destructive blow to business, with all but essential services shuttered for more than 100 days.

In conjunction with Ipsos, global leaders in market research, we’ve polled more than 800 Victorians to gain a sense of how we’re all feeling as a result of the most challenging year our state has ever endured.

Full results will be published next week in print and digital editions of The Age, with extensive coverage featured in 9News at 6.00pm with Peter Hitchener and in Nine’s Afternoon News at 4.00pm with Alicia Loxley.

Gay Alcorn, Editor of The Age, said:

“This is the most comprehensive opinion poll conducted on what Victorians think about the coronavirus crisis. It goes beyond the politics to reveal how the pandemic has impacted our lives, and what our hopes and fears are for the future.”

Hugh Nailon, Director of 9News Melbourne, said:

“After months in lockdown this landmark poll truly captures the mood among Victorians. The results are illuminating.”

From Daniel Andrews to Michael O’Brien to Brett Sutton and life under lockdown: find out what Victoria really thinks.

Starts Monday on 9News and in The Age.
