THE LATEST POLLS
* Voter Choice Project shows there is no clear national trend, but Labor's best chances lie in Victoria, with Tasmania and WA trending towards it. NSW is holding steady for incumbent MPs. But Queensland and South Australia are tracking towards the coalition.
Labor up for the third survey in a row to lead 55-45 in the 2PPH6. Last week’s drop in primary vote corrected as predicted. https://t.co/3CXjuwq6iF #auspol #ausvotes #ausvotes2019 pic.twitter.com/wTnBsNKzql— Voter Choice Project (@voterchoiceau) May 7, 2019
