Treasurer Scott Morrison hands Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce a lump of coal during Question Time in the House of Representatives at Parliament House in Canberra, Thursday, Feb. 9, 2017.

Voters think the Liberal party’s plan for addressing emissions is insufficient at a rate of 61.6% to 38.4%
55.8% of voters would be less likely to vote for a party that uses taxpayer money to subsidise coal projects.
