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 29 -April 1, 2013 with an Australia-wide cross-section of 2,954 Australian electors aged 18+.

Last weekend’s multi-mode Morgan Poll shows support for the L-NP increasing to 59% (up 2% since March 21-24, 2013) cf. ALP 41% (down 2%) on a two-party preferred basis.

The L-NP primary vote is 49% (up 2.5%) clearly ahead of the ALP 30% (down 0.5%). Among the minor parties Greens support is 11% (up 0.5%) and Independents/ Others are 10% (down 2.5%).

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 29 -April 1, 2013 with an Australia-wide cross-section of 2,954 Australian electors aged 18+.

The Roy Morgan Government Confidence Rating has now dropped to 98pts (down 1.5pts in a week) with 43.5% (up 2%) saying Australia is ‘heading in the wrong direction’ compared to 41.5% (up 0.5%) saying Australia is ‘heading in the right direction’.

Gary Morgan says:

“Today’s Morgan Poll shows the L-NP (59%, up 2%) increasing their significant lead over the ALP (41%, down 2%) on a two-party preferred basis in the week after the Labor leadership spill that wasn’t.

“In the wake of the non-leadership spill several senior Government Ministers resigned their positions – including former Labor Party Leader Simon Crean, and senior Ministers Martin Ferguson (Resources, Tourism and Energy), Chris Bowen (Financial Services, Superannuation and Corporate Law) and Senator Kim Carr (Innovation, Industry, Science and Research).

“The leadership instability in the Federal Government appears to now be over with former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd now discredited as a serious leadership prospect, however today’s Morgan Poll shows the Gillard Government has a lot of ground to make up over the next five months to stand a real chance of gaining re-election.”
