The results of a new poll are set to get the migration debate back on the agenda after revealing a majority of Australians believe immigration rates are too high.

The survey conducted by the Lowy Institute found 54% of Australians aren’t in favour of the current intake, up 14% from last year.

Entrepreneur and population campaigner Dick Smith says he’s continually surprised our political leaders aren’t fronting up to the issue.

“The only party that has a proper population policy… is Pauline Hanson.

“I would have thought one of the major political parties would reflect what most Aussies want and actually have a policy by now.”
