The federal coalition has gained ground on Labor in the polls but remains in a position to lose the election due by May.

Federal Labor remains in an election-winning position but the coalition has narrowed the gap, according to a new national poll.

The Ipsos poll conducted for The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age has the opposition leading the Liberal-National coalition 51 per cent to 49 per cent on a two-party preferred, down from 54 per cent to 46 per cent in December.

Labor's primary vote has fallen from 37 to 33 per cent over two months, while the coalition's rose 36 to 38 per cent in the poll of 1200 voters.

 

It comes after Prime Minister Scott Morrison last week ramped up the rhetoric on border protection following a historic loss in parliament on legislation making it easier for refugees to get medical transfers to Australia.

Victoria's MLC for Labor Mr Ceasar Melhem says the Government is using a scare tactics with the new law.
