    Two new opinion polls point to bad news for Scott Morrison, as the campaign enters its crucial final days, and the Coalition holds on for its life.

    A shock new poll has pointed to a devastating reversal of fortunes for the Coalition in a key Victorian seat — the state that will play a major role in deciding the election outcome.And a second opinion poll, as the campaign enters its final days, has delivered more bad news for Prime Minister Scott Morrison.Deakin in Melbourne’s east has swung significantly towards Labor, with support for the Liberal incumbent Michael Sukkar collapsing by more than 6 per cent.

    A YouGov Galaxy poll conducted for the Herald Sun spells bad news for the Coalition.Mr Sukkar is part of the Coalition’s far-right faction and was one of the key forces behind last year’s chaotic attempt to install Peter Dutton as prime minister.Labor has seized on anger in the electorate, distributing materials reminding voters there of Mr Sukkar’s alliances with former PM and fellow hard-right figure Tony Abbott.Climate change has emerged as the key issue in Deakin too, with Mr Sukkar a prominent climate sceptic.
