Psephologist Adrian Beaumont analyses this week's Morgan poll, and explains what it means for Victoria. His verdict? While polling to date has been sparse, Labor is tracking as the clear favourite.

A nationally representitive survey has found Australian politicians are failing to engage or build a sense of trust with voters just months out from the federal election.

The polls are showing a huge lead for Labor - in no small way courtesy of growing Greens momentum - as the campaign for Spring Street gets serious, Denis Muller writes.

What the major opinion polls tell us up to the start of campaigning.

In that other race Labor - which started as the odds-on favorite - is way out in front with four weeks to go. Psephologist Adrian Beaumont mines the data in six major polls of the campaign.

Opinion polls suggest support for Labor has plateaued and is subsiding slightly.
Dr Denis Muller

A rev-up in campaigning has failed to have a big impact on voters, with the latest polls showing Labor still holding a commanding lead. Denis Muller and Adrian Beaumont look at the numbers.

The opinion polls continue to look bad for Labor, but are the right questions being asked? 
Dr Denis Muller

The majority of Victorians support same-sex adoption, more TAFE funding, and the right to wear the burqa. They also want the East West Link built, Vote Compass results show.

It's been a busy and complex week of polling, with data at the national, state and individual-seat level. Here we try to disentangle them.
Dr Denis Muller

There was no escaping the opinion polls this election, with the Victorian electorate's decision to get rid of the inert Baillieu-Napthine Government flagged as early as June, writes Denis Muller.
