THE Fed­eral Coali­tion

NewsMail - Wide Bay Rural Weekly - - BUSH BANTER -

is los­ing ground to La­bor in re­gional Aus­tralia, with sup­port drop­ping to 34% in the third quar­ter, the lat­est Newspoll shows.

The Govern­ment won the Fed­eral Elec­tion last year with 44% of the pri­mary vote out­side the five cap­i­tal cities, with the poll show­ing a 10% slump.

And de­spite the Govern­ment in­creas­ing its sup­port in NSW, Vic­to­ria and South Aus­tralia, it has not been able to halt the na­tional slide to­wards La­bor, the poll con­ducted ex­clu­sively for The Aus­tralian shows.

La­bor con­tin­ues to lead the Coali­tion 53 to 47% in two-party pre­ferred terms.

Mal­colm Turn­bull con­tin­ues to lead Op­po­si­tion Leader Bill Shorten as pre­ferred prime min­is­ter.
