JULIA Gillard's two months-old prime ministership hangs in the balance with the government narrowly leading on the national two-party vote, but its fate resting on regional swings, according to a final poll for The Age.
Labor leads 52 per cent in the Age/Nielsen poll, down a point in a week, to the Coalition's 48 per cent, in two party terms - a swing of about 1 per cent against the ALP since 2007.
But nearly one in five people said they were somewhat likely or very likely to change their mind before voting today.
