The Australian reports the latest Newspoll has Labor’s lead narrowing from 54-46 to 53-47, from primary votes of Labor 34% (down two from the previous poll three weeks ago, although the accompanying report only says one), Coalition 36% (steady), the Greens 12% (up one) and One Nation 5% (down one). Anthony Albanese is down two on approval to 45% and up two on disapproval to 46%, while Peter Dutton recovers from a slump in the previous result to gain five on approval to 37% and lose two on disapproval to 50%, which still leaves him behind where he was two polls ago. Albanese’s lead as preferred prime minister is in from 50-30 to 50-33.
The poll was conducted Tuesday to Friday from a sample of 1225. There are also several sets of polling on the Indigenous Voice, including from Newspoll and all showing no well ahead, which will be covered in a separate post later this evening.
