Morgan poll shows Government support up for second straight week

By | | comments |

Last weekend’s Morgan Poll shows support for the LNP down to 55.5% (down 1% since April 4-7, 2013), on a two-party preferred basis, compared with the ALP 44.5% (up 1%).


The LNP primary vote is 47.5% (up 1%), still clearly ahead of the ALP 32% (up 1%). Among the minor parties Greens support is 10.5% (up 0.5%) and Independents/ Others are 10% (down 2.5%).

The multi-mode poll* was held from April 11-14 with an Australia-wide cross-section of 3,835 Australian electors aged 18+.

“Today’s Morgan Poll shows a second consecutive week of improvement for the Government, although the L-NP (55.5%, down 1%) still has a significant two-party preferred lead over the ALP (44.5%, up 1%) after Prime Minister Gillard’s successful trade negotiations with Australia’s largest trading partner China last week," said pollster Gary Morgan.

“Gillard’s announcement of the trade deal with China came as the Opposition launched its answer to the Government’s National Broadband Network (NBN)," he said.


* Electors were asked:
“If an election for the House of Representatives were held today — which party would receive your first preference?”
