Newspoll: 55-45 to Labor

Little change in Labor’s commanding position in Newspoll, as Scott Morrison’s personal ratings recover a little and Anthony Albanese records his best result in nearly a year.

The latest fortnightly (consistently so now, it seems) federal voting intention result from Newspoll has Labor’s two-party lead unchanged at 55-45, from primary votes of Coalition 35% (up one), Labor 41% (steady), Greens 9% (up one) and One Nation 3% (steady). It also includes for the first time this term a reading for the United Australia Party, who are at 4%. The leaders’ ratings find Scott Morrison recovering a little, up three on approval to 43% and down one on disapproval to 55%, but has even more favourable movement for Anthony Albanese, who is up four on approval to 44% and down three on disapproval to 43%. Albanese has almost closed the gap on preferred prime minister, now trailing 42-40, in from 43-38 last fortnight.

Full report here from The Australian; the poll was conducted Wednesday to Saturday from a sample of 1525.

  1. Tom Gleeson did win the Gold Logie with the most tongue-in-cheek campaign ever. Definite chance for PM.

    Vote 1 Tom – taking the piss out of the nation!

  2. Wonder if SfM has tested positive to the same COVID of Convenience strain as Novax Jokervich that comes on just when you need it.
