A second poll within days pointed to defeat for the NSW government in the March election.

The Resolve Strategic survey published in the The Sydney Morning Herald on Wednesday Labor shows the lead with a primary vote of 37 per cent.

The coalition’s primary vote is 34 percent, less than the 42 percent it registered in the 2019 election.

However, Dominic Perrottet’s rating as prime minister of choice is the highest since he succeeded Gladys Berejiklian in 2021, despite his recent admission that he wore a Nazi costume to his 21st birthday party.

The prime minister apologized for his behavior and described the incident as a naive mistake that did not reflect his views.

The poll showed a third of voters favored Perrottet as prime minister, while 29 per cent supported Labour’s Chris Minns. More than a third of voters remained undecided.

The Greens have a 12 percent primary, while the Independents take 11 percent as so-called “teal” candidates target a range of coalition blue voters in hopes of repeating the successes of last year’s federal election.
