Scott Morrison (pictured) will head to the Christmas break with the titanic task of turning around a damaged government before the May election, with the Coalition ending 2018 in the grip of a poll slump - but all is not lost according to Conservative Party leader Cory Bernardi.
A Newspoll conducted for The Australian shows the Coalition is now battling the same electoral crisis Malcolm Turnbull was faced with at the end of last year, with popular support remaining historically low.
The results of the final Newspoll of the year show the Coalition’s primary vote at 35 per cent, Labor’s at 41 per cent and a two-party-preferred split of 45-55, which would equate on a uniform basis to the loss of 21 seats for the government.
Senator Bernardi has told Paul Murray Live on Sky News, while the poll is bad news for the Coalition, there are a number of things Prime Minister Scott Morrison can do to reengage the electorate.
