Two poll results today from Victoria, both giving the Labor opposition election-winning leads.
The Age carries a Nielsen poll of state voting intention in Victoria, a once-familiar sight we don’t see much of these days, which has Labor with a commanding 54-46 lead on two-party preferred. Primary votes are 40% for the Coalition, 38% for Labor and 13% for the Greens. Nonetheless, Denis Napthine records a solid 47-37 lead over Daniel Andrews as preferred premier. There are also results on the government’s handling of various policy areas which you can see if you follow the link. The poll was conducted from Thursday to Monday from a sample of 1000 respondents.
Also out today was an Essential Research poll of state voting intention from three states including Victoria, derived from Essential’s last month of regular polling. In Victoria’s case there was a sample of 930 and a Labor lead of 52-48 on two-party preferred, from primary votes of 41% for the Coalition, 38% for Labor and 13% for the Greens.
