Only a third? I'm surprised -- I would have expected at least 80 per cent would want to get rid of the Senate.
In fact, I don't know why anyone would want to keep it.
But I guess its like the lottery -- lot of us think we're actually going to win a lottery and maybe a lot of us are also expecting to get that phone call from the Prime Minister someday too.

I'm for abolishing the Senate and reforming the House to something that actually represents the votes cast by citizens.
The existence of two houses is a relic of bygone centuries, when idiots like Lord Crawley ruled the roost, but were forced to accomodate commoners in the House of Commons; the Lords hung on grimly to power through a House of Lords, which had teeth to start with, but lost them one by one until it was reduced to a toothless echo chamber.
A bit like our own outdated Senate.
