Across Australia, the Turnbull Government continued to trail Labor 47 per cent to 53 per cent after preferences, which means it would lose an election held now, with the Coalition's primary vote support dropping six percentage points since last year's election.

The Queensland senator's One Nation party has 16 per cent support in her home state, the latest Newspoll shows.

The poll, commissioned by The Australian, shows voters have turned on Mr Turnbull in droves in South Australia, with Labor now ahead of the Coalition by 56 to 44 percent on a two-party preferred basis.

This is the state where Holden is winding up local auto manufacturing later this year.

Things are also looking grim for the government in Queensland where it has lost 10 percentage points since July, in stark contrast to One Nation which has leapt 10.5 percentage points.

However, the Turnbull Government has lifted its primary vote in Victoria by three percentage points over the past three months, where African Apex gangs are hitting the popularity of the state Labor government.

Labor's primary vote support in Western Australia has surged nearly 10 percentage points since last year's election to 42 per cent while the Coalition's support has fallen by nine percentage points to 40 per cent.

There was one small snippet of good news for Mr Turnbull, however, with the prime minister managing to hold his lead over Bill Shorten as preferred prime minister in every state and among every age group, including young voters.

Labor's primary-vote support in WA has surged nearly 10 percentage points since the July election to 42 per cent while the Coalition's support has fallen by nine percentage points to 40 per cent.

One Nation's support is now sitting at 9 per cent nationally, which is more than seven times the primary vote it gained in the lower house last election.
