Coalition popularity increases in latest newspoll

The coalition has gained ground on Labor in the latest newspoll, published in The Australian.

While Labor leads the coalition 53 percent to 47 percent on a two-party preferred basis, the government is continuing to narrow the gap, up 3 points from a low of 44 percent following August’s leadership spill.

In the primary vote, the coalition is just one point behind on 37 percent to Labor’s 38 percent.


Newspoll also found Scott Morrison remains the preferred prime minister with a 45 percent to 35 percent lead over Labor leader Bill Shorten.
