A new face-to-face Morgan Poll taken of  961 respondents over the weekend of 21-22 November shows Labor with a two-party preferred gap of 17 points over the Coalition, 58.5-41.5 (up by 2 per cent), with primaries of 48 per cent (up by 3 per cent).

A swing of this size, if carried through on election day would deliver the ALP a landslide victory, according to the ABC’s Antony Green Electoral Calculator.

“Polling was conducted prior to this week’s Liberal leadership ructions, but already several Liberals — including Liberal Senate Leader Nick Minchin — had expressed their opposition to the Rudd Government’s proposed CPRS — Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme,” Gary Morgan commented.
