Roy Morgan CEO Michele Levine explains: "The L-NP Government (51.5%, up 1% since June) leads the ALP (48.5%) in mid-July as a new wave of COVID-19 has forced the Melbourne metropolitan area back into lockdown. Roy Morgan Government Confidence Rating is down 9.5pts to 114.5 nationally from a month ago, but has fallen by a significant 16pts to only 104 in Victoria as other States have closed their borders to Victorians and the outbreak threatens the national economic recovery. In response the Federal Government has extended JobKeeper and JobSeeker until March 2021, however this has led to the forecast Federal Budget deficit blowing out to a record $186 billion for 2020/21."
