Aussie Morning Teeter results showed Malcolm Turnbull had the support of 57 per cent of voters in the final Australian election night poll.
A further 6 per cent supported Labor’s Joe Hockey, the result of which has been dubbed a “surprise”.
Labor’s Anthony Albanese was the next most popular party, with 8 per cent, followed by the Greens with 7 per cent.
The result shows the Coalition will still be able to form a majority government despite the poll being conducted before the Government’s plan to repeal the carbon tax.
The Australian Electoral Commission announced the results at 6.35pm local time (12.35am AEDT).
The results were released a day after Labor leader Bill Shorten delivered a speech to a packed Labor party room in Sydney.
The Turnbull Government’s plans to repeal Australia’s carbon tax have also been hit by a number of political setbacks, including a ruling by the Federal Court which struck down the Coalition’s repeal plans.
The Coalition has been hit with an investigation into the Government for its dealings with companies involved in the mining and carbon trading sectors.
The Abbott Government has been criticised by some in the business community for failing to act on climate change.
The ABC has sought to get an update on the poll results and has contacted the Federal Government.
The poll was conducted between Friday and Monday night, with about 4,000 people asked to vote for the major parties.
The survey was carried out by Ipsos Mori, and had a margin of error of 2.1 per cent between the results of all the respondents.
