LESS than one third of Queenslanders think the Newman government is open and accountable, according to a new poll that shows support for the Liberal National Party remains strong but has reduced from its election highs.

The ReachTEL poll of 1123 Queensland residents was taken on Friday night following mining magnate Clive Palmer's decision to quit the LNP.

The survey came ahead of the announcement on Sunday that government backbencher Ray Hopper was defecting to Katter's Australian Party.

The poll, commissioned by Seven News, shows 31 per cent of respondents believed the Newman government was open and accountable, while 48.6 per cent thought it was not and 20.4 per cent were undecided.

Premier Campbell Newman, who this month accepted the resignation of Housing Minister Bruce Flegg after revelations of undisclosed contact with his lobbyist son Jonathon Flegg, has repeatedly argued his government was more open and accountable than the former Bligh regime.
