More than 70 per cent of Australians support the Abbott government’s Sovereign Borders Policy, including the idea that boats should be turned back when safe to do so, the Lowy Institute’s annual poll shows.

Published today, the Lowy poll finds that 59 per cent of voters say “asylum seekers should be processed offshore, in places such as Nauru and Papua New Guinea.”
