As he prepared to topple Tony Abbott as prime minister in September 2015, Malcolm Turnbull cited the loss of 30 consecutive Newspolls as a key indicator of his predecessor's failings as leader.

Malcolm Turnbull is now just one bad opinion poll away from the 30-loss streak he used to justify replacing Tony Abbott as Liberal leader, with today's Newspoll revealing the Coalition trails Labor 47-53 on a two-party preferred basis.

The Prime Minister was asked about the poll during a press conference at the Australian Federal Police's training facility in Canberra, and tried to laugh it off.

"Why are you smiling then if it is not good news?" You are so pleased.

A reporter said: "Prime minister, 29 Newspolls is not good news".

"We are seeking to reduce business taxes to allow Australian businesses to invest and compete and create even more great jobs".

"Here are the numbers that I think Australians sweat on more than Newspoll: the deficit has been halved, unemployment has fallen from 6.2 to 5.6 per cent during the period you're referring to, 673,000 Australians have got a job", he told ABC radio on Monday.

"And you know, you know that that's the number we are focused on". We are focused on getting taxes down.

"These are the things that change people's lives, Newspoll doesn't".

"What will happen between now and whenever the federal election is, around the middle of next year, is Australians will become more acutely aware of the choices on the table".

The latest poll showed Labor slightly improving its primary vote to 39 per cent against the government's 37 per cent.

The Greens' and One Nation's primary votes remained unchanged at nine per cent and seven per cent, respectively.

The poll also lifted Shorten's satisfaction rating to 34%, two points ahead Turnbull's 32%.

But the prime minister was still the county's preferred leader, leading Mr Shorten 39-36.
