Women are holding the Morrison baseball bats

Roy Morgan polling has identified the precise time when female voters began to switch away from Prime Minister Scott Morrison, with Roy Morgan tracking male and female two-party-preferred outcomes. The switch happened in February 2021, when Brittany Higgins went public about her ordeal and treatment by the Coalition government.

While there has been a slight narrowing in the gap during the election campaign, Roy Morgan’s polling is still showing a 16% lead for Labor on a two-party-preferred basis among women, compared to just 2% for men.
