OPPOSITION leader Tim Nicholls has blamed a live television gaffe on a slip of the tongue.

Speaking to Sunrise early this morning Mr Nicholls told voters to "support your local LNP-One N, ah, LNP candidate at the election",  a slip some say could point to a potential deal with One Nation.

But Mr Nicholls has told media he meant to tell viewers to "vote one" for LNP.

Mr Nicholls made the comments during a final day campaign blitz of seven electorates across the south-east corner.

"Look, it's been a long campaign, I was simply going to say that you need to vote one for your local LNP candidate as I've said probably 500 times during this election campaign," he said.

Mr Nicholls has also refused to weigh in on the most recent Galaxy poll which showed Labor had 37% of the primary vote while LNP has 35 per cent and One Nation 12 per cent.

"Polls will come and go, I don't comment on the polls as you know," he said.

"The real poll is tomorrow and that's what I'm hoping for and working hard every day so Queenslanders know they can rely on an LNP government and I simply say again to Queenslanders, if you support the LNP, we won't let you down."
