On February 16, 2014, a month before the recent Tasmanian State election, the front page of the Sunday Tasmanian declared: "Voters clear on what politicians must deliverů JOBS, JOBS, JOBS". It reported a poll of 2912 voters showing that 50.9% of them considered job opportunities and the economy to be the issues that would most influence their votes.
