POLLING: Honeymoon period over for Coalition
The Coalition's lead over Labor has slipped, the latest Newspoll shows.
The coalition has a 51-49 per cent two-party-preferred lead over Labor, the poll published in The Australian newspaper shows.
It shows a two-point drop in the two-party-preferred vote for the Coalition since the electoral surge in July, which saw the Government increase its lead over Labor 53 to 47 per cent.
Popular support for the Coalition has dropped two points to 42 per cent while Labor's primary vote jumped a point to 34 per cent in the latest survey of 1623 voters.
