Clive Palmer says party will double its vote at election

FAIRFAX MP Clive Palmer believes his fledgling political party will double its vote at the next Queensland state election.

Mr Palmer said on Tuesday the Palmer United Party had completed internal polling suggesting it could double its vote in Queensland.

It comes after the party was an unexpected success in the federal election, with Mr Palmer himself getting 50% of the vote

He said he expected to get up to 18% of the state election vote, despite a Galaxy poll on Tuesday finding his party did not rate a significant mention.

"What, a Galaxy poll written by a News Limited journalist, that doesn't even have a category for PUP - what about other - what vote did that get?" he said.

Mr Palmer said despite the result in the poll, he was confident that the next state election would see PUP become a bigger player in Queensland.
