Australia appears to have decided to stick with its consistent two-year view that the Coalition government has to go, but is tensing a little with apprehension as decision day approaches.

The final Ipsos poll of the campaign finds Labor holding the narrowest of advantages at 51 per cent of the two-party preferred vote to the Coalition's 49.

Crunchy raw broccoli and brussels sprouts meet their match in a punchy triumvirate of olives, anchovies, and lemon juice. Starting at the crown, thinly slice both halves, including the stalk (alternatively, you can slice both broccoli and brussels sprouts in a food processor).

But there's no big swing on. The polls suggest a swing of 2 per cent on a national scale in favour of Labor compared to the last election result. But a few weeks ago it was about 3 per cent. There seems to be, if anything, a hesitancy in committing to Labor.

"There is a narrowing," says Ipsos pollster Jess Elgood. "I think it's testament to Scott Morrison's campaign and the way he's kept hammering away on the economy, on tax. Because there's not been much of an agenda from the government except for 'Look out for Labor, they're coming after your wallet'."

By which he means that all the major polling companies including Ipsos have found the same movement over the course of the campaign - a 1 percentage point shift to the Coalition.

Taken together, all the polls collectively and individually point to the same outcome: "The polling suggests Labor will win, perhaps by only a small number of seats," concludes Stirton, formerly the longtime pollster for Nielsen. "If you're Labor, you'll take that."

The biggest movement in this week's polls is in Bill Shorten's approval rating. The Labor leader, who has long been distinctly unloved, has seen a marked improvement. His approval rating gained three points and his disapproval lost three.

The result? His net approval rating is now minus 5. Other polls found the same movement over the same time. And the reason? It follows the attack by Murdoch's Daily Telegraph on Shorten for allegedly manipulating the story of his mother's life for political advantage.

As a hit job, it was a spectacular failure. Shorten's tearful response "cracked the professional politician and gave people a glimmer of him as a person," as Elgood puts it. Labor will take that, too.
