Labor Is In The “Box Seat” To Win The Election

May 13, 2019


Labor retains a 51-49 two-party preferred lead over the Coalition heading into the final week of the federal election campaign, according to the latest Newspoll survey.

According to

"With both sides preparing for a final electoral assault, with a $10 million advertising war starting today, Labor remains in the box seat to win government and retains its 51-49 per cent lead over the ­Coalition on a two-party-preferred­ basis.

"In a contest that remains tight, core support for the Coalition rose one point to 39 per cent, equal to the best result it has ­recorded since September 2016. However, it remains­ 3.1 points down on the last election, which resulted in the number of ­Coalition seats being slashed and left the Turnbull government with a one-seat majority."
