Newspoll: 64-36 to Coalition in NSW

The second bi-monthly Newspoll survey of NSW state voting intention since the March election landslide records no significant change on either the election result or the previous poll. On the primary vote, the Coalition is at 49 per cent (51.1 per cent at the election, 51 per cent in the September-October poll), Labor at 24 per cent (25.6 per cent and 22 per cent) and the Greens at 13 per cent (10.3 per cent and 14 per cent). The Coalition’s two-party lead is at 64-36, compared with 64.2-35.8 at the election and 66-34 in the previous poll. Barry O’Farrell however has suffered an eight point narrowing in net approval, with his approval rating down four to 49 per cent and his disapproval rating up four to 28 per cent. John Robertson’s net approval is also down slightly as his undecided rating reduces, with approval up a point to 28 per cent and disapproval up three to 35 per cent. O’Farrell’s lead as preferred premier is down from 57-13 to 54-15. Full tables from GhostWhoVotes.

    NSW Labor -> Worst run state party in Australia.

    I don’t think you are going to see anything significant for a while. Barry O’Farrell hasn’t actually done all that much. There’s nothing that could really annoy people enough to change their votes.
