Reuters poll trend: 55.3-44.7

Reuters has released a new Poll Trend result, a weighted aggregate of the past week’s Newspoll, Morgan and ACNielsen polls. It shows the first increase in Labor support since the campaign began, to 55.3-44.7 from 55.0-45.0 last week. Both parties are down on the primary vote, Labor from 47.4 per cent to 46.9 per cent and the Coalition from 40.8 per cent to 39.9 per cent.

  1. Agreed Pancho. But wonder how she’ll preform in opposition.

    Actually wonder how many of the Libs will go n the other side. Opposition is a tough gig. Question Time is suddenly not as much fun…

    Then again the same can be said for inexperienced Ministers, so if the ALP does win, it should be good viewing.

  2. Again, from the “Communist Mainifesto:

    It is enough to mention the commercial crises that, by their periodical return, put the existence of the entire bourgeois society on its trial, each time more threateningly. In these crises, a great part not only of the existing products, but also of the previously created productive forces, are periodically destroyed. In these crises, there breaks out an epidemic that, in all earlier epochs, would have seemed an absurdity — the epidemic of over-production

  3. Swing Lowe,

    Good point!!

    Well, I’m off to try and recapture that sleep I missed …

    Nite all.

    For those of you in the West, get an early night – no use staying up for LL.

  4. 736 And some Treasurers leave office with billions of dollars deficit while claiming a budget in surplus with 10% unemployment. I expect him to be in public office for just over one week more.

  5. William,

    If ever you are thinking of a career change, you should consider a job as an administrator in an insane asylum; lord knows, you’ve had plenty of practice dealing with lunatics here (of both persuasions).

    Ooooh, I hope “Ryan’s Rooted”, I’ve got a Monash on Daniels at 3.05 🙂

  6. [ShowsOn,

    The Libs were in power in NSW from 1988 to 1995.]


    [Much better than Gillard’s loathesome yokel.]

    You mean the next Deputy Prime Minister of Australia.
