Morgan: 60.5-39.5

Morgan’s latest survey combines two sets of phone polling conducted in the middle of this week and last week, producing an unusually large sample of 2231. Normally their phone poll figures consist of only one such set of polling. It shows Labor leading 60.5-39.5 per cent on two-party preferred – down from 61-39 at the phone poll of March 11-12, and from 63.5-36.5 in the more recent face-to-face survey released last week.

  1. Kina Says: @ 300,

    [It will be all too easy for Labor to paint this as WorkChoices. The LNP will be spending half their time during an election trying to say that it isn’t WC.}

    http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au/story/0,25197,23484820-5013871,00.htmlSort of “claytons” Workchoices Kina. The Workchoices you can have when you don’t have workchoices. They may as well have it tatooed on their foreheads.

    The push by Minchin for Costello to stay and potentially take over the leadership or failing that, for Half Nelson to remain, concerns me.

    Minchin is one of the architects of Workchoices numbers 1 & 2, along with Costello.

    [“There are a lot of achievements under Costello’s belt but there was a whole lot more he could reasonably have aspired towards …]

    I would much rather Costello wander off into the sunset and take his radical Industrial Relations ideas with him.

    I feel sure Kevin Rudd & Julia Gillard are having much difficulty containing their glee at the Opposition’s intent to continue shining the lantern of Workchoices so brightly almost every chance they get.

    The polls will remain at stratospheric levels and the next election will be like taking candy from a baby. Nelson should get used to seeing 6 to 7% 2PP figures for a good while yet. Can they get any lower? Probably.

  2. And, by gum, what a silly article it is…

    “The poll, taken at the weekend exclusively for The Australian, shows the Coalition has failed to peg back Labor’s dominance despite Dr Nelson’s political win in forcing the Prime Minister to announce a June visit to Japan after the Opposition accused the Government of neglecting a key strategic ally.”

    “Political Win” – how can it be a political win, if there are no spoils of victory?

  3. oh and there is this gem:

    [The latest Newspoll – taken during the Prime Minister’s tour to mix with world leaders in the US and Europe, while the Opposition Leader mixed with ordinary Australians on his “listening tour” – shows voters awarded the battle of the trips to Mr Rudd.]

    What a load of crap.
