Labor ahead of Coalition in latest Newspoll

Labor has a four point lead over the Coalition in the latest Newspoll – the biggest since Malcolm Turnbull came into power.

The poll is based on two-party preferred, while the Coalition’s primary support is also down to 38 per cent.

Support for the Coalition is now officially lower than Tony Abott’s figures when he was ousted as Prime Minister last year.


Labor’s support has risen one point to 37 per cent in the last fortnight, and the Greens have gained one point to 10 per cent.

Other parties and independents have also climbed a point, to 15 per cent.

Overall support for Mr Turnbull remains as the preferred Prime Minister over Bill Shorten, but a significant number aren’t happy with his performance.

Less than a third of voters are satisfied with him, and more than half are dissatisfied, since the election 12 weeks ago.

The poll surveyed 1662 voters, between Thursday and Sunday last week.
