Poll-mix, which now aggregates and weights weekly rather than fortnightly, gives an encouraging trend for the government.

The most recent pair of numbers, from today’s Newspoll, Saturday’s online Nielsen and a Morgan phone poll released on Friday, is 54.5 to 45.5 in Labor’s favour.

Last Tuesday’s 58 to 42 Newspoll has slipped into the previous week’s poll-mix. It is yesterday’s news.
