The Australian 18 November 2014:
In two-party-preferred terms, based on preference flows from last year’s election, Labor leads by 55 per cent to 45 per cent. The ALP’s third consecutive rise in two-party terms means the opposition has been in front of the Coalition on this measure for 14 successive Newspolls.
It would appear that it wasn’t just international and national media who felt that hosting the November 2014 G20 international summit did little for the political standing of either Tony Abbott or the Australian Coalition Government - as opinion polling conducted over the summit period (from Friday 14 when world leaders began to arrive through to the Sunday 16 and the final communique) clearly demonstrates.
Dissatisfaction with Tony Abbott’s performance rose by three points to 55 per cent and the number of poll recipients who saw him as the better prime minister fell by two points to 37 per cent.
