I think this is an anomaly in Nielson terms. The Nielsen has been showing Labor on a better number than Newspoll has been for a while. Today they show the same number as newspoll – so Nielsen has suddenly shown a drop in their trend, but actually are showing the same number as Newspoll.
What does this tell us? Not much. Could be a rogue poll. Could be a sign that Nielsen is now tracking closer to Newspoll. Could be a sign that the next Newspoll will also be bad for Labor, with an even worse result. I feel like the Newspoll is a better quality poll, so I’ll be waiting for the next one.
