- 56 per cent for the period December 5/6 and 12/13, 2015
- 55.5 per cent for the period January 2/3 and 9/10, 2016; and
- 54 per cent for the period January 16/17 and 23/24, 2016
But I am a little cautious of the final result. It includes the weekend near Australia day. Because many households use the Australia day weekend as a long weekend, this can affect the comparability of polling results. And to highlight my caution, as we will see below, some of the primary vote results suggest significant movements in voting intention. It will be interesting to see how Morgan behaves in its next fortnightly print.
Notwithstanding this caution, adding these numbers to the aggregation, we get an estimated two-party preferred result for the Coalition of 55 per cent
Turning to the primary vote aggregations, we can see the more surprising statistics in the most recent Morgan print. Morgan had the Coalition's primary vote well down on recent polls (from 47 to 43.5). On the up-side we have the Greens (from 13 to 15) and the other parties (from 11 to 13.5). The Morgan symbol on these charts is the upwards pointing triangle.
Note: I have upgraded the analytical engine to JAGS 4.1.0. A description of the aggregation models can be found here.
