Gillard climbs back into the scene: Newspoll

Gillard climbs back into the scene: Newspoll

Prime Minister Julia Gillard’s week in Western Sydney last week, appears to have paid off, as Labor’s primary support has risen and Ms Gillard has reclaimed the title of preferred Prime Minister in the latest Newspoll.

Ms Gillard’s support as preferred prime minister jumped 6 points, to 42 per cent as support for the Opposition Leader Tony Abbott slipped 2 points to 38 per cent

But on a 2 party prefered basis the Labor party is still suffering.  

The ALP’s primary vote has improved three percentage points in the past two weeks to 34 per cent,  but the Liberal party is still 10 points ahead of the government at 44 per cent.
