Melbourne, Mar 27(ANI): The latest poll has found the Julia Gillard government can be wiped off, with its primary vote falling to 28 percent, which is just one point short of the depth Labor plunged in Queensland.

The Newspoll in The Australia n found that Labor's primary vote plunged from 31 percent to 28 percent. Labor's primary vote in Queensland was 26.9 percent, news.com.au reports.

The Coalition is up four points to 47, while the Greens fell one point to 11 percent

The poll comes after Julia Gillard described the election result as "a deep, deep disappointment", but denied it was due to unpopular federal policies such as the carbon tax.
