WITH 10 days to go until the election, the LNP has pulled ahead of Labor in the polls.

A ReachTEL poll commissioned by Seven News questioned 1635 Queenslanders on Tuesday night and found support for the LNP had grown by 2 per cent since the snap election was announced.

Of the respondents polled, 42 per cent said they would preference the LNP first, up from 40.3 per cent on January 6,  with 36.7 per cent offering their number one spot to Labor, down from 38.1 per cent when the election was called.

The Greens saw a slight increase in support, from 7.6 per cent to 8.4 per cent, with Palmer's United Party continuing its slide in the polls, dropping to 5.2 per cent from 6.3 per cent.

Two-thirds of respondents said the government would win a second term, regardless of their voting preference.
