BludgerTrack: 52.0 to 48.0 to Labor

More of the same from the BludgerTrack poll aggregate, with the Coalition’s voting intention trend lagging behind Malcolm Turnbull’s personal ratings.

The two new polls this week, from Newspoll and Essential Research, were very slightly at the high end of the Coalition’s form, causing them to nudge up by 0.3% on the BludgerTrack two-party projection. Other than that, the main news in BludgerTrack is that the seat projections are now running off post-redistribution margins (which you can read all about in the post below), and the state data from Ipsos last week has been mixed in to the state calculations. Compared with last week, the Coalition is up one on the national seat projection, making gains in Victoria and Western Australia and dropping one in Queensland. Leadership numbers from Newspoll have added further emphasis to the upturn in his personal ratings, despite the apparently static picture on voting intention.

  1. from earlier post on population density..SMH..When you don’t count national parks, Sydney’s population density exceeds Los Angeles’ – and some suburbs are more heavily impacted than others.

    Manhattan has 26,000/ sqKm, greater Tokyo 6,200/ sqKm… Sydney.. 1,230/sqKm..Greater Sydney including national parks 407/sqKm!

    Sydneys problem is lack of density , poor planing & poor infrastructure.
