Newspoll: 53-47 to Labor in Western Australia

The latest state Newspoll for WA records voters flocking back to the major parties – the Labor Party in particular.


The Australian’s latest quarterly Newspoll result on state voting intention in Western Australia, covering the period from October to December, records Labor with a 53-47 lead over Colin Barnett’s Liberal-National government, up from 52-48 in the previous poll. Beneath this modest shift is some striking movement on the primary vote, albeit that the previous result was from way back in April-June, since there was no published result for July-September. A big slump in minor party support leaves room for Labor to bounce nine points to 42%, with the Liberals also up four to 37%. The slide by all other players afflicts the Nationals (down two to 5%), the Greens (down four to 10%) and “others” (down seven to 6%). Colin Barnett is down three points on both approval and disapproval, to 33% and 54% respectively. Mark McGowan is respectively down two to 47% and one to 32%, and he holds a 41-36 lead as preferred premier, down slightly from 43-37. The poll was conducted by live interview telephone polling from a sample of 841.
