Labor continues to lead Coalition in unchanged Newspoll

The latest Newspoll has revealed the opposition still holds a huge lead over the Government, as preferred leaders of the country.

Despite a whirlwind few weeks in federal politics, the Labor party leads the Coalition with an unchanged two-party preferred vote of 53-47 percent.

In the latest Newspoll – published by The Australian last night – the Coalition’s primary vote sits at 37 percent, where it has stayed since the start of the year.


Both Scott Morrison and Bill Shorten have also suffered hits to their approval ratings.

The Prime Minister returned a 48 percent disapproval rating, while the leader of the Opposition’s rating rose to 53 percent.

The unchanged poll results demonstrate the recent havoc in parliament – caused by the latest asylum seeker debate – has done nothing to either side’s chance of winning the next election.
