EARLIER: ALL eyes will be on Jacqui Lambie today, after the controversial Senator dropped the Palmer United Party logo and name from her website.
There is plenty of speculation she will quit the party as early as this morning.
The move to drop any connection with the PUP from her website follows a war of words with party leader Clive Palmer.
The Tasmanian Senator publicly criticised Mr Palmer over his lack of support for her policy positions while he called her a ‘drama queen’.
The latest Roy Morgan poll shows PUP’s vote has dropped to 2.5 per cent – the lowest level since before the federal election.
