PM may struggle to hold Bennelong

A poll out this morning indicates Prime Minister John Howard may face a battle to hold his own seat at the next federal election.

A poll conducted by Roy Morgan Research, for the Crikey website, has found Labor is ahead in Mr Howard's Sydney seat of Bennelong 55 to 45 per cent on a two-party preferred basis.

The poll of 400 Bennelong voters was carried out in the middle of last week.

It also revealed a 75 per cent approval rating for Kevin Rudd compared to 44 per cent for the Prime Minister.

The ABC contacted the Prime Minister's office this morning but there was no comment on the Bennelong polling.
