Poll shocker puts Turn­bull at risk

Warwick Daily News - - NEWS NATION & WORLD -

MAL­COLM Turn­bull’s rank as pre­ferred prime min­is­ter has plunged five points to 36 per cent in the lat­est Newspoll, fuelling spec­u­la­tion he could be re­placed by For­eign Min­is­ter Julie Bishop. Mr Turn­bull still leads Op­po­si­tion Leader Bill Shorten – who is up one point to 34 per cent – but the poll shows vot­ers pre­fer Ms Bishop (pic­tured) over Mr Turn­bull as Lib­eral leader, 40–27 per cent. It also shows the Coali­tion slip­ping fur­ther be­hind La­bor in two-party pre­ferred terms, 45–55 per cent, and the Coali­tion’s pri­mary vote slid­ing one point to only 34 per cent.
