Newspoll: 59-41 to Coalition in NSW

The November-December Newspoll result for state voting intention in New South Wales is little changed from September-October, suggesting Labor has only made modest gains since the March 2011 election wipeout.

The latest bi-monthly Newspoll result of state voting intention in New South Wales shows the Coalition retaining a commanding 59-41 lead on two-party preferred, unchanged on the result for September-October. This brings to an end a run of three successive polls in which Labor made slight gains, paring the Coalition lead back from the devastating March 2011 election result of 64.2-35.8. The current poll has Labor up a point on the primary vote to 29%, which for what is worth is a new post-election high, with the Coalition steady on 45% (the six point drop since the election has come entirely off the vote for the Nationals, who are down from 12.5% to 6%) and the Greens steady on 11%. John Robertson’s personal ratings have improved slightly, his approval up two to 27% and disapproval down six to 33%, while Barry O’Farrell is respectively up two to 38% and down two to 40%. O’Farrell’s lead as preferred premier is little changed, shifting from 46-22 to 44-21. Full tables from GhostWhoVotes.

Still to come from Newspoll’s state polling vaults are the November-December result for Victoria and, most importantly, the October-December result for Western Australia, where an election looms on March 9.
