Flash Executive Director Kate de Brito told Sky News Australia that political parties should be “worried” by the research.
“Some of the newsflash results showed that only 11 per cent of Australians felt confident that they understood the policies of the major parties,” she said.
“With only 10 days to go until the election, that’s a bit of a worry.
“People had much more understanding, as you referred to earlier, about pop culture moments in 2022 – they remembered the slap, they remembered Djokovic’s deportation, they remembered Ash Barty’s retirement, but they knew far more about those than they knew about things like the response to the floods or the vaccine rollout.”
The research released by Flash and conducted by YouGov online, between March 31 and April 4, 2022, was based on a sample of 1,092 adult Australians.
