Morgan puts Coalition in front.

The latest Roy Morgan poll shows the Coalition easily winning an election if it were held now by 52% to 48% on two-party preferred terms. (For some reason Morgan says this is "close", in which case they would call just about every federal election "close"). This follows another poll showing the majority of Australians disapprove of Kevin Rudd's performance.

These results are consistent with our What the people want polling, as reported in The Australian.

Morgan principal Gary Morgan says:

“The latest Morgan Poll surveys on voting intention are ‘bad news’ for the Rudd Government. Apart from the drop in Roy Morgan’s April unemployment estimate to 6.6%, down 0.8%, all important measures are getting worse for the Rudd Government. Mr. Rudd’s approval is down 6% to 36% while Mr. Rudd’s Better Prime Minister rating is down 4% to 49%, whereas Mr. Abbott is up 5% to 37%.

“The Roy Morgan Consumer Confidence Rating is also down — plummeting 5.7pts over the past week to 117.8. during which time the New York stockmarket crashed over 1,000pts last Friday before rebounding earlier this week.”
