Wednesday, March 27th, 2013 - Roy Morgan Research

After last week’s political turmoil the Roy Morgan Government Confidence Rating has now dropped to 99.5pts (down 12pts in a week) with 41% (down 6%) saying Australia is ‘heading in the right direction,’ compared to 41.5% (up 6%) saying Australia is ‘heading in the wrong direction’. 

 

Last weekend’s multi-mode Morgan Poll shows support for the L-NP increasing to 57% (up 2.5% since March 14-17, 2013) cf. ALP 43% (down 2.5%) on a two-party preferred basis.

The L-NP primary vote is 46.5% (up 0.5%) clearly ahead of the ALP 30.5% (down 2.5%). Among the minor parties Greens support is 10.5% (unchanged) and Independents/ Others are 12.5% (up 2%).

If a Federal Election were held today the L-NP would easily win the election according to today’s multi-mode Morgan Poll on Federal voting intention conducted over the last few days, March 21-24, 2013 with an Australia-wide cross-section of 3,494 Australian electors aged 18+.

After last week’s political turmoil the Roy Morgan Government Confidence Rating has now dropped to 99.5pts (down 12pts in a week) with 41% (down 6%) saying Australia is ‘heading in the right direction,’ compared to 41.5% (up 6%) saying Australia is ‘heading in the wrong direction’.

Gary Morgan says:

“Today’s Morgan Poll shows the L-NP (57%, up 2.5%) increasing its significant lead over the ALP (43%, down 2.5%) on a two-party preferred basis after the disorder in the Federal Government last week brought new questions about who will lead the ALP to this year’s Federal Election – set to be held on September 14, 2013.

“The leadership worries about Prime Minister Julia Gillard were on full display as former Labor Leader Simon Crean called for a leadership spill – although former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd refused to challenge Gillard who was reconfirmed as leader unopposed. However, the Roy Morgan Government Confidence Rating plunged by 12pts to 99.5 in the wake of the turmoil.

“Although Federal Parliament is not due to sit again until the Federal Budget is delivered in early May, the Opposition has already indicated it will move a ‘No Confidence Motion’ in the Government on Budget Day, potentially causing renewed leadership speculation for the Gillard Government as it sets out its policies for re-election.”
