I don’t think they were expecting that! The official Facebook page of 9 News Gold Coast created a poll today, asking their followers if they want Senator Fraser Anning “ousted from parliament.”
“Senator Fraser Anning has charged taxpayers for travel to-and-from three far-right protests,” the Facebook post reads. “Do you want to see Fraser Anning ousted from parliament?”
In the first four hours the poll gathered more than 47k responses, with over 38k participants voting NO. That’s over 80% of the voters.
“I wonder if Channel 9 will report this tonight?” Senator Fraser Anning said on Twitter. “At the time of writing, 35,800 votes have been counted and 83% of Australians do NOT want me removed out of parliament.”
