Coalition suffers 40th consecutive Newspoll loss

It appears a change of leadership hasn’t helped the coalition, with the party losing its 40th consecutive newspoll.

The poll, published by The Australian on Monday, shows the Morrison Government trails Labor 44 to 56 per cent in two-party- preferred terms.

There’s some good news for Scott Morrison however, with the poll revealing him as Australia’s preferred Prime Minister over opposition leader Bill Shorten.


Morrison leads Shorten 42 to 36 per cent.

It’s the first fortnightly Newspoll since the August 24 leadership spill which saw Morrison replace Malcolm Turnbull for the top job.
