Newspoll: 52-48 to Labor

After a career-threatening result for Malcolm Turnbull three weeks ago, Newspoll records the Coalition bouncing back to near-competitiveness.

Newspoll records a much improved result for the Coalition, with Labor’s two-party lead cut from 55-45 to 52-48. The Coalition is up three on the primary vote to 37%, Labor is down two to 35%, One Nation are steady on 10%, and the Greens are down one to 9%. Malcolm Turnbull is up one on approval to 30% and down two on disapproval to 57%; Bill Shorten is down one to 29% and up one to 57%; and Turnbull’s lead as preferred prime minister has improved from 40-33 to 43-29. The poll was conducted Thursday to Sunday from a sample of 1819. Report from The Australian.

Spelling Burke right would have helped.

Citizen – Thanks. So it looks like Newspoll would have been a disaster too, except for the Snowjob sugar hit, which Malcolm has now dissolved with his 18C fiasco. I suspect then that newspoll will now resume normal operation and voters will be even more pissed off when they realise that the Snowy scheme was just a thought bubble.

Tony Burke’s speech was smashing.
The government’s and Turnbull’s decline has been gradual as people have started to wake up to them…I think today they jumped the shark, not because 18c is a burning issue but because they confirmed how crazy and irrelevant they are

Is there a video of the speech anywhere, its not on YouTube atm/yet?

Nevermind, I’ve seen the link.

Would I be right in saying that most of the polling for Essential would have been done before the snowjob (Tuesday to Thursday) and most of the polling for newspoll afterwards (Thursday to Sunday)?]

Peter Lewis’ article in the Guardian today says the snowjob happened too late to be included in the Essential mix.

Yes, it was good luck that the propeller didn’t fall in a populated area, although it was close. Life is full of dangers, but bits of aircraft dropping out of the sky don’t really feature in most peoples’ worries.

On the other hand aircraft bits dropping out of the sky have probably killed more people in Australia than terrorism, and look at the money we waste on that.

Tony Burke

He’s a very decent politician. Not a leader but capable of doing difficult things.

Apologies, but I haven’t seen any QT today. Is there a link to Burke’s speech?

Labor has helpfully put out a list of all the times (pre and post election) Turnbull as ruled out changes to 18C.

Pauline Hanson shares most of the Liberals’ small Government / anti welfare agenda. She just says out loud what much of the Liberal base (including some in Parliament) actually think.

It seems that the prop headed away from the aircraft without impacting the fuselage

It’s an unusual event and deserves some looking in to.

Me, also a frequent user in the past of turbo prop a/c for work.

Is it strange that Essential’s 55-45 result isn’t reported on PB yet?

The general media seem to be running completely dead on the story, but that’s definitely not strange.
