Plenty of talk about Malcolm's 30 consecutive losing Newspolls.
Some of it suggesting that the Coalition has actually only won one Newpoll in the last 61 or 122 weeks. Not true.
Their record is abysmal but one out of 61 is not true. It was not Abbott losing 30, one in front and then 30 Turnbull losing.
The other point is they do not run Newspolls every fortnight- so you can't simply multiply the number of Newspolls by 2 to give the number of weeks involved. Abbott's 30 consecutive ran 2013- 2015 until Turnbull, Morrison and Bishop knifed him in September, 2015. Then Turnbull lead until Feb 2016, when his high level of support collapsed. There was then a period where Labor lead from March, 2016 except for a couple of polls around election time when Turnbull got his nose in front. Labor has lead consistently since October 2016, virtually the whole term of Turnbull's current government. The 30th, as you know has just come up. You need to look at the Two Party Preferred and the Archive.
The way I count it, the Coalition has only won 9 of the last 76 Newspolls (since about June 2013).
Their record is actually 9 winning polls in almost 5 years. Two of those were at the time of the last election and the rest were during the Turnbull initial honeymoon.
By anyone's measure, the last two Coalition Governments have been deeply unpopular, particularly given they have faced a consistently unpopular Opposition Leader- his highest approval was about 45 at the peak of Abbott's troubles and dropped to 15% at the peak of the Turnbull euphoria. For the most part Shorten has lived with about 30% since March, 2016..
