Labor has lost two percentage points but still leads the Coalition comfortably – 53 per cent to 47 on two-party preferred terms.
The Newspoll conducted by The Australian shows the Coalition’s primary vote has also grown two percentage points in the three weeks since the last Newspoll, registering now at 36 per cent while Labor dropped to 37 per cent.
Pauline Hanson’s One Nation has lost ground in the same period, going backwards from 10 to 8 per cent while the Greens have gone up to 10 per cent.
In a further boost for the Coalition, Malcolm Turnbull has widened the gap on Opposition Leader Bill Shorten in the stakes for preferred prime minister.
Turnbull is now ahead of Shorten by 39 per cent to 33.
