Labor budget gets lukewarm response, migration slammed

Energy bill relief in the federal budget has failed to spark a major boost in the polls as voters despair over migration numbers.

The $300 rebate for household energy bills proved popular, with 72 per cent of people supporting the measure, according to a Resolve poll conducted for Nine newspapers.

There was a similar level of support for a $1 billion package to extend and expand domestic violence programs, while revamped tax cuts received 68 per cent support.

Taking the budget as a whole, 40 per cent believed it was good for them or their household, while 21 per cent thought it was bad.

There were similar figures for people who thought it was good or bad for the country and for the economy.

But more people thought it was bad for inflation, with support dropping to 34 per cent and disapproval up to 27 per cent.

The government has been slammed on migration, with 60 per cent of all voters saying it had handled it "in an unplanned and unmanaged way" while only 20 per cent thought it was being handled well.

Coalition voters were more likely to disapprove at 75 per cent compared to 37 per cent of Labor voters.

More than a third of Labor voters agreed with how immigration was being handled compared to 14 per cent of coalition voters.

Two-thirds of Australians thought net migration of 528,000 people was too high, compared to 23 per cent thinking it was right.

This dropped to 50 per cent thinking it was too high and increased to 35 per cent thinking it was right for next year, when net migration is set to fall back to 260,000.

The coalition promised to reduce the permanent migration intake by a quarter in the opposition leader's budget reply.

Anthony Albanese leads Peter Dutton for preferred prime minister 40 to 32, while Labor's primary vote lags the coalition 29 to 36.

Labor went backwards one per cent while the coalition gained the same figure compared to last month.

Mr Albanese also led as preferred PM in the latest Newspoll conducted for The Australian 52 to 33, with 15 per cent uncommitted.

Labor leads the coalition 52-48 on the two-party preferred vote in Newspoll as well, a change from last month's 51-49.

Newspoll put Labor's primary vote at 34 per cent compared to the coalition's 37.

Those who thought the budget was good and bad sat at 27 per cent a piece, while almost half of Australians remained uncommitted.

Almost 40 per cent thought it would be bad for inflation, compared to 34 per cent who thought it would make no difference and 15 per cent who thought it would make it better.
