Can Turnbull Survive today’s Horror Poll?
The chaotic rabble over at the Coalition are today waking to another a Newspoll that shows their election losing streak continues unabated with Labor now leading 55% to 45% on a two-party-preferred basis.
This massive 10 point lead would see the Coalition wiped out if an election were held today
The Coalition has also been haemorrhaging voters to Pauline Hanson’s One Nation party, which has doubled its primary vote to 10% since November, now matching the Greens.
Outspoken Nationals member George Christensen would struggle to keep his Queensland seat if an election were held today, with voter support for Pauline Hanson’s One Nation and the Liberal/National party now neck and neck, according to new polling.
One Nation and the LNP now have 30 per cent each of the primary vote, according to polling last week by ReachTEL and commissioned by the Australia Institute.
The doomsday prognosis comes in the wake of Turnbull’s recent rabid dog performance in Parliament, which clearly hasn’t resonated as much with the public as much as it did with his colleagues.
The Coalition’s primary vote has fallen to 34%, a drop of five points since October, but disaffected voters appear to have favoured One Nation and other minor parties, with Labor holding steady on 37% over the same period.
Almost one in three voters said they would choose neither of the two main parties, with One Nation and the Greens both on 10% and a further 9% selecting other minor parties.
These numbers are worse than when Tony Abbott was knocked out of the top job by Malcolm Turnbull in September 2015.
The dramatic poll result is expected to send shockwaves through the Coalition when Parliament resumes in Canberra today.
