Recent poll results show Julia Gillard led Labor Party has regained traction in the upcoming September 2013 Federal Elections after gaining two percent. Polls have been the center of criticisms in the last few weeks following results showing significant drops on Labor's popularity. Among the people who questioned their validity are supporters of the Labor party.
Labor now has 32 percent vote from 30 percent last week while the coalition dropped from 50 to 48 percent. The Greens, however, remained consistent with its 2010 election level at 11 percent, Big Pond News reported.
The opinion poll, taken over the weekend, suggests that if an election was held now Labor would face a five per cent swing.
Based on 2010 preference flows, this could cost it 20 seats and deliver victory to the coalition.
Prime Minister Julia Gillard has risen slightly in the preferred leader rankings, up two points to 37, compared to Tony Abbott, who fell three points to 40 per cent.
That leaves 23 per cent of poll respondents uncommitted to either leader.
On a two-party preferred basis, the coalition leads Labor 55 to 45 per cent.
