Latest Newspoll shows Coalition and Labor ‘deadlocked’

The latest Newspoll shows support for the Prime Minister has fallen for the first time since the coronavirus crisis reached its peak.

The results, published by The Australian, shows the two major parties deadlocked at 50-50 on a two-party preferred basis.

It means the Labor party has made a four point turn around since the last results, published three weeks ago.


It’s believed the Coalition’s dip could be down to the federal government’s handling of the coronavirus outbreaks in aged care.

Border restrictions has also become a highly contentious topic, with voters now backing their Premier’s rights to close the borders if necessary.

While the federal government continues to push states to reopen, in order to get the economy back on track.

The Newspoll shows Scott Morrison remains preferred Prime Minister, but Labor’s Anthony Albanese’s standing has improved.
