Carbon Price opinion – the starting gates

Carbon Price opinion – the starting gates

Over the next 12 months, we’ll have more polls on pricing carbon than we can poke a stick at – some more valuable than others –  so it’s probably worth taking a squiz at where public views of carbon pricing sit at the starting gates of what will probably be a bit of a rollercoaster […]

Nielsen poll – the other stuff

Nielsen poll – the other stuff

Yesterday we looked at the voting intention results from this weekend’s Nielsen poll, so today we’ll have a squiz at the rest of it – the usual preferred PM and approvals, plus some questions on the ETS, immigration levels, voting commitment, win expectations and the Glorious Citizens Assembly of the Peoples Republic of Julia. First […]

Nielsen – ETS and Trust

Nielsen – ETS and Trust

Nielsen asked an additional set of questions to accompany their vote estimates published in Fairfax today – two focusing on the ETS and another measuring the trust that people have in each leader. The first question was a standard ETS question: Do you support or oppose an Emissions Trading Scheme for Australia? The next question […]

Essential Report – approvals, promises and the ETS

Essential Report – approvals, promises and the ETS

This week’s Essential Report comes in with the primaries running 40 (down 2)/ 39 (steady) to Labor, washing out into a two party preferred of 53/47 the same way – a one point gain to the Coalition since last week. The Greens on 11 (up 2), while the broad “Others” are steady on 10. This […]

I’ll see you a coward and raise you an idiot.

I’ll see you a coward and raise you an idiot.

Rudd’s backflip on the ETS and his unwillingness to fight a double dissolution over the issue makes him a coward. No, it’s true – every color-by-numbers, intellectually lazy hack from Broome to Cockle Creek has told us so over the last few days. You only have to head over to Fox News With Words and […]

Nielsen Part 2 – Climate Change Polling

Nielsen Part 2 – Climate Change Polling

Continuing on from Part 1 of the Nielsen where we looked at the vote estimates, we’ll now take a bit of a squiz at the additional questions in the poll. There we three questions on the ETS/climate change and one on means testing the private health insurance rebate – so we’ll deal with the latter, […]

Turnbull to Abbott – You Bleeping Bleeper that Bleeps.

Turnbull to Abbott – You Bleeping Bleeper that Bleeps.

Turnbull just wrote a post over on his blog which will cause a bit of a shitstorm – effectively accusing Tony Abbott of deliberately lying to the public, among a great many other things. The title: “Time for some straight talking on climate change” sets the scene. Last week we thought that the Liberal Party […]

Abbott, ETS and the imaginary backlash

Abbott, ETS and the imaginary backlash

I had this in the Crikey email today – since it’s free on the main Crikey site, I’ll post it here as well. The ascension of Tony Abbott to the Liberal Party leadership was launched out of a wave of hysteria gripping some parts of conservative Australia over climate change and emissions trading. The deluge […]
