A day before the close-run NSW election, local and national newspapers have thrown their support behind the Coalition.

Sydney tabloid The Daily Telegraph has made no secret of its preference for Premier Gladys Berejiklian to be returned for another term, especially after Labor leader Michael Daley's stumbles during Wednesday's Sky News leaders debate.

That support was confirmed today in an editorial that argued NSW was a national leader "due in large part to Berejiklian's work as transport minister and treasurer". It spends a good amount of time criticising Daley, saying his campaign was dependent on "showbiz over substance", coming unstuck this week.
