A 54% 2PP for Labor would be a 4.4% swing.

With a uniform swing of that size, the government would lose 21 seats on the current boundaries. Labor would gain most of them but not all (Grey could fall to NXT and the Greens could gain Batman from Labor). Of course, uniform swings never happen - seats with margins of 20% could fall, seats with margins under 2% could be retained, and sometimes seats even go the other way.

The 2PP is unreliable due to two factors: the One Nation factor and the method of calculating preferences that Newspoll uses.

One Nation is picking up the protest vote and their voters do not give as strong a flow of preferences to the Coalition as one might expect. These preference flows are volatile and hard to predict.

Worse for the government is that Newspoll does not explicitly ask respondents to allocate preferences, but uses preferences flows from the previous election to calculate a 2PP figure. This method is not reliable when a significant swing is on. This is why the major pollsters did not predict the outcome of the 2015 Queensland state election. In that election, they used the preference flows from the previous election, which did not take into account the significant swing to Labor. These polls were out by 2% - the difference between a 5-seat to 10-seat Coalition majority and the actual result of a hung Parliament.

What this means for the Federal Newspoll is that the actual 2PP could be wider, 55-45 or so. However, it's not possible to make this call due to the volatility of One Nation's preferences. If it was 55-45, a uniform swing on the current boundaries would only deliver three additional seats.

The most important factor that affects predictions is that redistributions are currently underway in Queensland (0 seats), Victoria (+1 seat), South Australia (-1 seat), Tasmania (0 seats) and the ACT (+1 seat). A redistribution has recently been completed in the Northern Territory. This redistribution will favour Labor because the current malapportionment favours the Coalition. Labor could gain two or three notional seats after the redistribution. Labor will certainly gain a notional seat in Victoria and the ACT, and may gain one in Queensland. The Turnbull government will go into the next election needing to gain seats to retain a majority, and that's not a good position for a moribund government to be in.

I assume you mean Federally.

I don't think it is likely. The last time they were prominent was in 1998. They gained 11 seats in the Queensland parliament in the election held on 13 June 1998 with 23% of the vote, but no seats Federally in the 1998 Federal election (3 October) with 9% of the national vote. They gained one Senate seat in Queensland with 15% of the vote.

To win seats Federally, they would need high-profile candidates running in winnable seats. In 2013, the Palmer United Party was very prominent, but only Palmer himself won a seat - and that by a very small margin. I don't expect One Nation to do any better.

#BREAKING: The latest newspoll has revealed that @TurnbullMalcolm's approval rating has dropped from 41 to 36 per cent. @AustralianLabor widened its lead over the coalition 55% - 45% in two party terms.

Don’t get too excited about 55:45 (tho nice to see :clap ) the approval rating is much more significant (statistically and politically.) This MUST strengthen the RWNJs to boot Malcolm and put abbott back as PM?

All turdful had to do really was run a reasonable government. He couldn’t do that. Crap Budgets, Robodebt, cutting pensions, now the Manus horror etc etc etc. Couldn’t even finish running out the NBN Labor had started, have now spent/committed $60Bn on a temporary network, biggest waste of taxpayers’ money ever, losing Lib support with every botched connection, failure to connect, lousy connection worse than the previous ADSL etc.

Fairfax IPSOS poll:

Primary L/NP 34 (-1) ALP 33 (-1) GRN 13 (-1) ON 7
I just say: bullshit.

Greens are on 9%, ON about right at 7, Libs are right, low 30s but ALP are more like 38.

Just tiny movements within MoE so not significant. I would say LNP PV is too high due to sampling error, 33–34 is more what it is. ALP PV 37-38.

Will see what Essential says tomorrow.

Today’s Essential gives very different results to Newspoll.

Labor is up, 55/45.So much for all yesterday’s blather about breezes and resets. All is within Margin of Error.

No-one really cares if the Liberals dump Malcolm, 54% overall say it won’t affect their vote.

Julie Bishop is nowhere near preferred leader – “I dunno” is leading there.

Newspoll:
53-47 Labor (No change)

Primary votes 37 Labor, 36 Coalition, 10 Greens, 7 One Nation.

Turnbull approval: 32-57
Shorten approval: 32-56
Preferred Prime Minister: 41-34 Turnbull over Shorten.

Same sex marriage finally becomes legal – no effect on Newspoll.
Turnbull attacks Dastyari – no effect on Newspoll.

I hear about Poll results and shrug. There are so many of them, and sometimes they agree with me and sometimes they don't.

Polls play no roll in my political decisions when it comes to voting.

At the moment the Polls seem to be heading in the correct direction. :bgrin

Will he have a choice?

Fuckwads: people are hurting because wages grow less than inflation, living expenses increase by more. What does the dickhead do? Talks about taxcuts for companies and the wealthy. Contrary to what Crocodile says, company tax cuts do not lead to more jobs.

Croc is so deluded he thinks retained earnings are cash. They are not. Cash flow and profit can be very different: a failing company selling assets at firesale prices has plenty cash coming in, but is not making profits.

LNP 38(+2) that is way overstating the LNP PV!

Just movement within MoE and LNP position overstated.
