    Almost 2 million voters deserted the Libs because of Turnbull.

    They are now returning.

    Voters who once turned on Turnbull are flocking back

    The first Newspoll survey of the 2019 election campaign has the Coalition in the same position as the past five governments: behind in two-party preferred support when the election was called, and that includes three that went on to win.
    The Coalition has also started the campaign as all previous Coalitions have in the past five elections: a rise in primary support in Newspoll, and, despite losing two elections, the Coalition’s primary vote has always risen through the election campaign.
    Scott Morrison’s successful appeal to disaffected Coalition voters who moved to One Nation since the 2016 election, compared with Malcolm Turnbull, was also revealed.

    It was Turnbull’s weakness in drawing back lost conservative voters that was a large part of why he was removed as Liberal leader after losing 30 consecutive Newspoll surveys to Labor on a two-party preferred basis.
    The latest Newspoll survey shows the ALP ahead of the Coalition on a two-party preferred basis, 52 to 48 per cent, the Coalition and Labor’s primary vote both rising to 39 per cent and One Nation’s falling from 6 per cent to 4 per cent.
