As depressingly predictable as it is, it is still unbelievable that after being unceremoniously dumped in a landslide 3 years ago, the punters are willing to lineup and give this Labor mob another go according to the latest Newspoll in The Australian.
This is not a barometer have how good Labor is but just how seriously bad “The Turnbull Team” really is.
“…Shorten’s standing with voters has jumped to a 12-month high, underpinning Labor’s election-winning lead in Newspoll as Malcolm Turnbull’s support has continued to tumble.
The latest Newspoll, taken exclusively for The Australian, shows that after the first two weeks of the election campaign the government has been unable to claw back Labor’s two-party-preferred lead of 51 per cent to the Coalition’s 49 per cent.
And the massive approval enjoyed by the Prime Minister in the early months after he replaced Tony Abbott last September has been wiped out, with Mr Turnbull’s net satisfaction rating now the same as for the Opposition Leader, at -12 points.
With six weeks to go until polling day, the Newspoll represents a two-party swing against the government of 4.5 per cent.
If repeated on election day with a uniform swing, it would suggest about 23 Coalition seats would be lost and Mr Shorten would lead a Labor government with a narrow majority…”
