I don’t think the poll says why you think it does.

Respondents were asked whether they’d like to see the NSW population increase, stay the same or decrease. This question doesn’t necessarily yield the result and findings that people want a population cap.

What else could it mean? (Not trying to be smart just asking your view)

The question is typically asked in the context of growth or around the components of population change. The wording used in the Oz-Newspoll question could be interpreted differently between respondents - issue with validity and reliability.

Respondents who reported 'stay at the current level', may not necessarily want a cap over time but rather be referring to the rate of growth. Also, we don't know the number of respondents interviewed.

The question wording is bad.

Whilst it may not specifically refer to a time period one can infer that 'stay the same' means no change and thus seems to be preferred at this point in time.

With the greatest respect Liz, this is absolute rubbish. The question is simple and it is quite reasonable to assume that respondents understood it. 🧐🧐🧐
