The latest opinion poll conducted by the Newspoll in the Australian newspaper showed on Monday that the opposition Labor Party’s lead over Australia’s conservative coalition government narrowed further.

The Australians head for the poll on May 18th.

Key Findings (via Reuters):

“Labor’s lead fell by a point to 51 percent to 49 percent from the previous poll two weeks ago on a two-party preferred basis, where votes are distributed until a winner is declared.

Morrison’s government had trailed Labor by 54 percent to 46 percent in March, before calling the election.

Labor is still expected to gain between six and 10 seats to give it the government.

The Newspoll surveyed 2,136 voters from Friday to Sunday.”
