The latest quarterly reading of state voting intention in Western Australia from Newspoll, and the last that will emerge from the existing Newspoll organisation, shows Labor maintaining its 52-48 lead on two-party preferred. However, they are down two points on the primary vote to 33% while the Liberals and Nationals remain steady on 40%, with the Greens also steady on 14%. Labor leader Mark McGowan’s strong personal ratings have also taken a knock, with approval down four points to 49% and disapproval up five to 33%. Colin Barnett’s standing has also worsened, with approval down two to 36% and disapproval up four to 57%. McGowan maintains his lead as preferred premier, at 43-37 compared with 44-38 last time.
