Today’s Morgan Poll shows a strong improvement for the Opposition with the L-NP (58%, up 3.5%) substantially increasing its lead over the ALP (42%, down 3.5%) on the weekend before Prime Minister Julia Gillard announced a Federal Budget ‘blowout’ to a $12 billion deficit, despite promising for years that the 2012/13 Federal Budget would be in surplus. Today’s Morgan Poll is a similar result to the Morgan Poll at the start of April which showed the L-NP (59%) cf. ALP (41%) on a two-party preferred basis.
