MELBOURNE, Feb 11: Australia's conservative government is facing a huge electoral defeat as it heads into the final sitting of parliament ahead of a national election expected in May, a widely watched poll found on Monday.
A Newspoll for The Australian newspaper showed opposition Labour retained a lead of 53 percent to 47 percent over the Liberal-National government led by Prime Minister Scott Morrison, unchanged from the previous poll in December, despite recent efforts to frighten voters on Labour's tax plans.
The poll came out as parliament returns this week from its summer break, with the minority government facing defeat on two issues.    -REUTERS
