Crucial By-Election On a Knife’s-Edge As Turnbull’s Majority Comes Under Threat

Pre-Polling Station in West Ryde

The Liberal party’s primary vote has collapsed in the North-Western Sydney seat of Bennelong, where the Turnbull government is fighting a crucial by-election.

According to the Newspoll published in The Australian on Tuesday, the two Major parties are 50-50 on the two-party preferred vote and 39-39 on the primary vote.

With Malcolm Turnbull holding a razor thin one-seat margin in the House of Representatives, Saturday’s poll will decide if the Government will keep their Majority.
