Three in four Melburnians want the 5km travel limit scrapped NOW as Victorians turn against Chairman Dan's lockdown
The number of Melburnians who want the five kilometre travel limit to be scrapped has grown to an overwhelming majority, according to the latest poll.
Three quarters of those in lockdown want the restrictions their movements relaxed, up nine per cent from a fortnight ago and up 30 per cent from six weeks ago.
Sixty per cent of regional Victorians now agree the travel limit imposed on five million Melburnians by Premier Daniel Andrews is harsh, up from 45 per cent just two weeks ago.
Almost three in four Victorians, (73 per cent) believe Melburnians should be able to visit their families while 62 per cent want the city's hospitality businesses reopened for dining-in table service.
An overwhelming majority (85 per cent) of those surveyed would be keen to be get a jab if a coronavirus vaccine became publicly available.
More than 2,000 Victorians participated in the latest Roy Morgan SMS survey on the state's stage four restrictions.
Melburnians are in their 13th week of stage four lockdown.
The Roy Morgan SMS survey was the seventh one conducted since the city was plunged into stage four lockdown on August 2 following a second horror wave of coronavirus which has claimed the lives of more than 800 Victorians.
'Initially Victorians, and Melburnians who bore the brunt of the restrictions, were willing to comply. However, each week has shown increasing numbers of Victorians and Melburnians wanting the restrictions lifted,' Roy Morgan chief executive Michele Levine said.

Mr Andrews wants the 14-day rolling average number of cases to fall to just five before imposing a widespread easing of restrictions.
The current average is almost double at 9.6.
Ms Levine called on the Victorian government to create a COVID-Safe environment.
'It is unlikely Victoria will see a reduction in cases until proper tracing is in place. This latest research shows clearly Victorians don’t simply want to sit at home and wait,' Ms Levine added.
Victoria recorded seven new cases on Wednesday, which ended six consecutive days of double figures.
Melbourne's rolling case average also dropped from 10 to 9.6.
Five more deaths were recorded,the highest since September 29, taking fatalities to 816 and the national total to 904.
