SYDNEY - Support for embattled Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard has fallen to historic lows, a leading poll showed on Saturday, threatening her plans to introduce major reforms such as new carbon and mining taxes.

The AC Nielsen poll showed that only 27 percent of voters would choose her Labor party first under Australia's system of preferential voting, the first time in the poll's 39-year history any major party has registered under 30 percent.
