THE Victorian government is facing a drubbing from voters, the latest Newspoll suggests.
The poll, published in The Australian today, has Labor with a commanding 55-45 lead over the coalition on a two-party preferred basis, the same result as two months ago.
The coalition's primary vote was down a point to 36 per cent, and while Labor's actually fell three points to 38 per cent, it was offset by a rise in the Greens' popularity.
Premier Ted Baillieu's net satisfaction rating slid to minus 15, one of the worst results for a leader in the past two decades, while Opposition Leader Daniel Andrews improved his standing to minus six, his highest standing since the 2010 state election.
Mr Andrews also maintained his nine-point lead over Mr Baillieu in the question of preferred premier.
The next state election is due in November next year.
