Australia's opposition Labor party is on course to win power at this weekend's national election, a widely watched poll showed on Thursday, as conservative Prime Minister Scott Morrison fails to woo voters with his promise of economic stability. An Essential Poll for The Guardian newspaper showed Labor ahead of Morrison's coalition government by a margin of 51.5-48.5 on a two-party preferred basis where votes are distributed until a winner is declared. The poll is one of the last barometers of Morrison's standing with voters, who have largely been unswayed by his campaign message that Labor would damage Australia's economy, which has recorded 28 years of consecutive growth.
