Hodgman not worried by poll figures

With more than 18 months to go until the state election, Tasmanian premier Will Hodgman isn't worried by wavering support for his government.

Since November his administration's popularity has fallen 11 points to 37 per cent - its lowest result in six years, according to the results of the latest EMRS poll.

Over the same period support for the Labor opposition has picked up seven points to attract 32 per cent of the primary vote.

"People will make their own assessments as to what this might mean at an election," Mr Hodgman said of the figures and how they might impact Tasmanians' next visit to the ballot boxes in March 2018.

"Between now and then we will be concentrating on what we need to and that is the things Tasmanians care about - and that's health, education, job opportunities, the growth in our economy."
