56% of people who felt able to give a yes or no response would definitely have voted yes (41.5%) or would probably have voted yes (14.7%).

Through the comprehensive rejection of the voice vote, did Australians reject constitutional recognition? It is true that the vote was a clear rejection of the form of constitutional recognition that was preferred by the majority of signatories to the Uluru Statement from the Heart (i.e., ‘constitutional reforms to empower our people and take a rightful place in our own country’). However, it does not follow that the Australian population voted against constitutional recognition per se. Rather, the survey data suggests that there is still widespread support for a broad definition of constitutional recognition, including amongst no voters.
