Opinion Poll Overview – October 2017

Filed under: Politics, Australian Politics, Elections, Opinion Polls,

The latest Poll Bludger BludgerTrack was published on Saturday 7 October. It showed Labor leading 53.9 to 46.1 per cent on the two-party preferred vote from 53.5 to 46.5 per cent the previous week and two weeks earlier.

Poll Bludger’s William Bowe wrote “The Coalition's dire position weakens still further, as One Nation recovers from a recent dip”

He wrote, “Three new polls this week, from ReachTEL, Essential Research and YouGov, has moved Labor to a just-shy-of-career-best result in the BludgerTrack poll aggregate, on which they now hold a two-party lead of 53.9-46.1. However, the seat projection total is unchanged, as a gain for Labor in Queensland is balanced by a loss in South Australia. The big move on the primary vote is to One Nation at the expense of the Coalition. No new results this week for the leadership trends.”
