Newspoll: 55-45 to Labor

Newspoll’s second poll for the year records no change on the major party primary votes since the Coalition’s disastrous result a fortnight ago, but a decline in Greens support and Anthony Albanese’s personal ratings.

The Australian brings us a new result from Newspoll, suggesting it is moving to a fortnightly schedule now that the election is in view. It is only slightly better for the Coalition than the previous disaster, with Labor’s lead in from 56-44 to 55-45. Both major parties are unchanged on the primary vote, the Coalition at 34% and Labor at 41%, the two-party result reflecting a three-point drop in support for the Greens to 8%. One Nation is steady at 3%, with the lost Greens vote accounted for by a three-point increase in “others” to 14%.

The news for Labor is less good on personal ratings, with Anthony Albanese’s approval down three to 40% and disapproval up three to 46%, after the previous poll respectively had him up four and down two. Scott Morrison is up one on approval to 40% and down two on disapproval to 56%, and his lead as preferred prime minister is out from 43-41 to 43-38. The poll was conducted Wednesday to Saturday from a sample of 1526.

  1. Now they bring out anti-chinese articles:

    An alleged plot by a suspected Chinese spy and a Russian-born Brisbane businessman to smuggle military equipment has been uncovered by the Australian Federal Police.

    Brisbane entrepreneur Alexander Cher, 63, is accused of partnering with Chinese national and former Melbourne businessman Brian Chen to circumvent Australian laws that prohibit the export of military items without federal government approval.

    This is dirty politics during election period.

    Fuck the media.
