Blue-collar workers are losing confidence in the Albanian government as support for the Coalition gains ground among trade workers and TAFE-trained Australians.
The latest poll by RedBridge reveals that the Labor vote has fallen by 4 per cent since August, with support from Australia’s working class falling noticeably.
The poll results highlight the possibility that the country’s rejection of Voice to Parliament could harm Labor’s vote at the next election.
More than 60 per cent of Australians voted no in the referendum, with every state and territory voting against the Voice except the ACT.
The latest RedBridge poll reveals that Labor’s vote under Prime Minister Anthony Albanese (pictured right with partner Jodie Haydon) has fallen by 4 percent since August, due to a collapse in its support among the class Australian worker.
The online survey of 1,205 people was conducted between October 25 and November 2.
The poll finds that half of Australian voters do not think the government’s priorities are right, although the same percentage do not think the coalition led by Peter Dutton is ready to take over the country’s leadership.
In August, RedBridge found that Labor’s primary vote was ahead of the Coalition’s 39 percent to 28 percent among voters in year 12 or equivalent.
Among voters with a TAFE, vocational or vocational education, Labor led the coalition 36 per cent to 29 per cent in the primaries.
But the situation has reversed in the latest poll, with the Coalition now leading Labor in the primaries among those two demographic groups.
Among voters with a grade 12 or equivalent education, the Coalition now leads Labor with 37 percent to 28 percent in the primaries.
For voters who have a TAFE, business or professional background, the Coalition leads by 35 to 33 percent.
The Labor primary vote improved slightly among tertiary-educated Australians, from 40 percent to 41 percent since the referendum.
Support for the Coalition, led by Peter Dutton (pictured), improved among voters with a grade 12 education and those with a TAFE, business or vocational education.
Meanwhile, the Coalition’s share of voters with a university degree fell from 34 per cent to 31 per cent.
The referendum also appears to have caused a drop in Labor primary voting among those aged 35 to 49, triggering a real headache for the Albanian government.
In October, Labour’s primary vote among this age group was 41 per cent, compared to the Coalition’s 26 per cent, but last week’s poll found the two were tied at 32 per cent.
The government leads the opposition 53.5 percent to 46.5 percent on a bipartisan preferred basis.
This is, however, a decline from Labor’s lead of 55.6 percent to 44.4 percent in August.
“The honeymoon is over for Anthony Albanese and he is now sleeping on the sofa,” said RedBridge director Tony Barry. Today’s telegraph.
“The only thing currently holding the dam wall back is that a majority of voters do not believe the Coalition is ready to govern,” he said, referring to poll results that only 30 percent of voters think the Coalition is ready to govern. to 50 percent who think he is not ready.
