A Federal Parliament that roughly divides down the lines of the Coalition being terrible on everything except China versus Labor being better on everything except being captured by China shakes our as a narrow Newspoll lead for the Government:
Popular support for Scott Morrison has risen to its highest level in four months following the reopening of the Victorian and Queensland borders and as leadership tensions encircle Anthony Albanese.
The lift in the Prime Minister’s approval ratings also comes amid an escalation in the diplomatic and trade conflict with China and the release of the Brereton war crimes report.
A Newspoll conducted for The Australian shows the Coalition preserving its 51-49 two-party-preferred lead over Labor and maintaining its eight-month-long electoral dominance as the government and opposition return to parliament on Monday for a two-week sitting before the summer break.
So long as Labor remains trapped within the CCP orbit, one can only hope that ScoMo’s lead holds.
