More than three-quarters of voters in Malcolm Turnbull’s Sydney electorate of Wentworth would support reviewing the environmental approvals for the controversial Adani coalmine, according to a new opinion poll.

Opposition to the mine is a significant issue in the head-to-head contest between Labor and the Greens in the by-election in Batman
