“Time bomb” for republicans – Younger voters prefer monarchy

February 6, 2014

According to The Sydney Morning Herald:

Backing for an Australian republic has collapsed to a 20-year low, with just 39.4 per cent of Australians saying they support a republic.

Support was lowest among older Australians and Generation Y voters…

Australians for a Constitutional Monarchy national convener David Flint said the findings were a ”time bomb” for the republican movement, with support among 18 to 35 year olds at 35.6 per cent. More people in this age bracket oppose a republic than support it.

”That is a time bomb, I believe, for republicans, because you don’t have that investment for the future,” Professor Flint said.
