Baird “set for victory” – poll

by Alan Thornhill

The New South Wales Premier, Mike Baird, is set for a comfortable victory in today’s State elections, according to a new poll.

The Morgan poll puts the vote for the conservative coalition he leads at 57.5 per cent, against Labor’s 42.5 per cent, on a two party preferred basis.

However the Labor Leader, Luke Foley, still hasn’t given up hope of snatching victory, in a late run.

But pollster, Gary Morgan, said: “…. Mike Baird is set to win tomorrow’s NSW State Election comfortably despite the L-NP support falling substantially since the 2011 NSW Election.”

“The ‘Presidential-style’ campaign run by the NSW Liberal Party – concentrating heavily on the popular Baird – Australia’s most popular political leader – appears to have worked,” Mr Morgan added.

He said Luke Foley had attempted to ‘scare’ voters out of handing Baird his first election victory as leader by warning of increased electricity prices if the Coalition pass their controversial legislation leasing 49 per cent of the ‘poles and wires’ for 99 year to private enterprise.

However Mr Morgan added:” judging by the momentum in the final week of the campaign, the positive messages presented by Baird on the campaign trail have proved to be ‘the winner’ against Foley’s negativity.”
