Morgan Poll shows LNP lead down for third consecutive week

By | | comments |

Last weekend’s multi-mode Morgan Poll* shows support for the LNP down to 54.5% (down 1% since April 11-14, 2013) against ALP 45.5% (up 1%) on a two-party preferred basis.


There was even worse news in the Poll, with its primary votefalling by a steep 3.5%. This loss largely came through voters switching to Independents and minor parties, with their primary vote climbing 3% to 13%. The ALP also saw its primary vote edge higher by 0.5% to 32.5%, while The Greens support was unchanged at 10.5%.

Pollster Gary Morgan said the poll showed a positive response by electors to the Government’s response to the Gonski Review:
"The improvement for the Government comes after Prime Minister Julia Gillard announced a $14.5 billion increase in education funding over six years in response to the Gonski Review into school funding. Although the plan has widespread backing, it requires the support of the States & Territories to be fully implemented."

The Roy Morgan Government Confidence Rating has risen to 105.5pts (up 4.5pts in a week) with 42.5% (up 1.5%) saying Australia is ‘heading in the right direction’, compared to 37% (down 3%) saying Australia is ‘heading in the wrong direction’.


* This multi-mode Morgan Poll on Federal voting intention was conducted over the last few days, April 18-21, 2013, with an Australia-wide cross-section of 3,270 Australian electors aged 18+. Electors were asked: “If an election for the House of Representatives were held today — which party would receive your first preference?” Of all electors surveyed, 1.5% (unchanged) did not name a party.
