Newspoll: 59-41 to Coalition in NSW

Wherein NSW Labor trails on the two-party vote in Newspoll by less than 20 points for the first time since March-April 2010.


I wouldn’t quite go popping the champagne corks yet if I were them, but the latest bi-monthly Newspoll of state voting intention finds NSW Labor with a four in front of its two-party vote for the first time in well over two years. The two-party result of 59-41 for September-October compares with 61-39 in July-August, from primary votes of 45% for the Coalition (down two), 28% for Labor (up one) and 11% for the Greens (down one). On both measures, this is the best result for Labor and the worst for the Coalition since March-April 2010. Significantly, Barry O’Farrell’s net approval rating has hit the negative for the first time, his approval down a point to 36% and disapproval up five to 42%. However, John Robertson is doing no better, his approval down one to 25% and disapproval up five to 39%. O’Farrell’s lead as preferred premier is 46-22, down from 47-18.
