Save the Children poll claims Aussie against detention

A NATIONAL poll released today by Save the Children has revealed two thirds of Australians (66%) believe refugees on Nauru and Manus Island have been living in limbo for too long and think the Prime Minister should immediately commit to finding a way to resettle refugees by the end of the year.

The findings also show 77% of Australians - including three quarters (75%) of Liberal voters - want Mr Turnbull (left) to accept New Zealand's offer to resettle them.

And 93% said separated families should be reunited.
