The average of the public polls since 2012.
The monthly newsletter was published yesterday. The summary is:
There were two political polls in January – a Roy Morgan and a 3 News Reid Research.
The average of the public polls has National 23% ahead of Labour in August, up 3% from December. The current seat projection is centre-right 65 seats, centre-left 46 which would see a centre-right Government.
In Australia the Coalition is 8% behind Labour as Abbott battles to remain Leader and Prime Minister.
In the United States Obama’s approval rating has improved but is still negative. Clinton remains the dominant Democratic frontrunner while the withdrawal of Mitt Romney sees no front runner for the Republicans.
In the UK Labour’s lead over the Conservatives has declined to just 1%.For the first time in some years they are no longer forecast to get a majority.
In Canada the Liberals remain in the lead over the Conservatives, but are projected to win slightly fewer seats.
The normal three tables are provided comparing the country direction sentiment, head of government approval and opposition leader approval sentiment for the five countries.
We also carry details of polls in New Zealand on summer holiday dates and leadership attributes plus the normal business and consumer confidence polls.
