The West Australian today carries a ReachTEL poll of state voting intention showing Labor with a lead of 52-48, up from 51-49 at the last such poll in mid-September. On the primary vote, the Liberals are down 2.3% to 35.9%, the Nationals are up 0.7% to 6.1%, Labor are up 0.2% to 36.7%, and the Greens are down 0.8% to 7.7%. Mark McGowan’s lead over Colin Barnett as preferred premier is up from 54.1-45.9 to 55.6-44.4. The poll was conducted on Thursday evening, from a sample of 1785.
A new WA poll finds the Liberals taking a slight knock since the last such poll in mid-September, but otherwise shows little change.
