BludgerTrack: 53.3-46.7 to Labor

The BludgerTrack poll aggregate maintains its steady course overall, but with signs of the Greens losing ground.

Another fairly uneventful week in the world of BludgerTrack, which has only nudged 0.1% in favour of Labor on two-party preferred and one on the seat projection (the gain being in New South Wales), despite their one-point improvements in the week’s Newspoll and Essential Research polls. If there’s anything worth noting, it’s that the Greens have fallen below 9%, and One Nation are back up after a recent dip. Both pollsters also produced new numbers for the leadership trends, the only observable movement on which is that Scott Morrison’s net approval is slightly improving, for no immediately obvious reason. Full results through the link below.

  1. Upnorth…yes, Howard will be venerated. It will be very unpleasant……

    On the Gs and Anning….doubtless they will be trying very hard to find ways to attack Labor, as always. If they can use Anning, they will. They’re so very dedicated to their gig.

    I’d be happy for Victoria, SA and Tasmania to secede from Australia and join NZ as the people’s southern republic (progressive, educated, nice) and leave the cashed-up bogan red neck states to go on as ‘Straya . We’ll have to teach the Kiwi’s how to play real footy, but otherwise I think it’d work.

    I live in Tassie, I’m in

    Me too. Every election when the libs start carrying on about boat people I feel a total disconnect from the redneck states where presumably this foolishness finds an audience.

  3. I agree, davidwh….the last thing we should do is to expel MPs. They can be censured or suspended. They can be found to be ineligible by the HC. But otherwise voters chose them. Voters should remove them too.

    We should not be letting the Gs make martyrs of imbeciles, racists and scoundrels.

  4. @ briefly – agree the G’s are dangerous. Giving Anning a cross to nail himself too. Leave the expulsion to the voters.

    We are not the Soviet Union.

  5. Davidwh your up late. I hear some rain in SEQ. Possible Cyclone for the North during the week.

    I miss QLD wet seasons. Upnorth the Barra and Mud Crabs will be biting!!

    Stay safe.

    Agreed, but in that case I think there’s an argument for introducing a recall mechanism so a grievously offending MP can be put to re-election (or rejection) by the people before the end of his/her term.
