Troy Bramston on Sky News reports the latest Newspoll result on state voting intention in New South Wales has the Coalition leading 61-39, down from the 63-37 result for March-April (Newspoll went strangely quiet on state results after that point). On the primary vote, the Coalition is steady on 47% while Labor is up three to 27% which, pathetic though it is, is Labor’s best result since March-April 2010. The results at the election were 51.0% for the Coalition, 25.6% for Labor and 10.3% for the Greens. We are also told that Barry O’Farrell’s approval rating has fallen 11 points to 37%, and that his lead as preferred premier has shrunk from 56-14 to 47-18. In contrast to the usual experience of new-ish Opposition Leaders in the early party of the electoral cycle, the uncommitted rating for John Robertson has gone up, resulting in his approval rating falling two to 26% and his disapproval falling three to 34%.
