The NSW coalition government maintains a comfortable lead over the Labor opposition despite losing nine Liberal MPs as a result of the ongoing Independent Commission Against Corruption investigation, an opinion poll suggests.

Newspoll, published in The Australian on Monday, says the coalition leads Labor 54 per cent to 46 per cent on a two-party-preferred basis.

The opinion poll says Labor’s primary vote is up two points from the most recent survey in May and June to 33 per cent, its highest level since the election in 2011, while the coalition’s primary vote sits at 40 per cent, down three percentage points from the last poll.

Premier Mike Baird leads state Labor leader John Robertson as preferred premier, 45 per cent to 21 per cent.
