Australian Prime Minister John Howard's party is lagging far behind the opposition, a key opinion poll released Monday showed, as he kicked off his re-election campaign. A day after Howard called a Nov. 24 election, a Newspoll survey published in The Australian national newspaper showed that the center-left Labor Party held a crushing 12 percentage point lead over Howard's center-right coalition, 56 percent to 44 percent. The poll asked which party respondents would vote for. Labor needs a swing of 5 percent of the vote to win its first election since 1993.
