Leadership Polling – a comprehensive rundown

Leadership Polling – a comprehensive rundown

Yesterday both Galaxy and Newspoll released polling on leadership ratings of a Rudd/Gillard head-to-head, while Morgan asked the same with a phone poll late last week. Looking at the three questions, Galaxy asked: Which of the two Labor politicians, Kevin Rudd or Julia Gillard, do you believe would be the best choice to be leader […]

Newspoll comes in this fortnight via The Oz with the primaries running 43 (up 4)/ 38 (down 3) to Labor, washing out into a two party preferred of 56/44 the same way – a 4 point gain to the ALP. The Greens are on 12 (up 1), while the broad “Others” are on 7 (down […]

Newspoll – Abbott’s Debut Edition

Today’s Newspoll via The Oz comes in with the primaries running 40 (down 3) / 38 (steady) to Labor, washing out into a two party preferred of 54/46 the same way – a 2 point gain to the Coalition since the last Newspoll of 2009. The Greens are in on 12 (up 1), while the […]

The Coalition and Women Voters

The Coalition and Women Voters

We often hear about how Tony Abbott has a problem with women voters (or rather, how women voters have a problem with Tony Abbott), which even if true, isn’t a particularly new phenomenon to the post-Howard Coalition. Brendan Nelson and Malcolm Turnbull both experienced polling problems with women voters at various times during their leadership. […]

The Liberal Party Disaster in the Capital Cities

The Liberal Party Disaster in the Capital Cities

Think back over the last two years of the Rudd government and keep in your thought orbit the never ending commentaries of Labor facing some “political crisis” or  “increased pressure” or dangerous “political test” which was inevitably going to end in failure. Think back on the multitude of dour proclamations by the usual suspects – […]

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 […]

The Poll That Events Forgot

The Poll That Events Forgot

With the mad hullabaloo of the last 2 days, poor old Essential Report – what we usually look at on a Monday – was all but forgotten. It has the primaries running 47 (up 2) / 39 (down 4) to Labor, washing out into a two party preferred of 58/42 the same way, a 3 […]

Abbott – The Numbers Point to Grief

Abbott – The Numbers Point to Grief

This vote won’t resolve the Liberal Party conflict, it will only send it into a sequel. The vote for the spill had 82 people vote, which was passed 48/34. This caused a three way leadership race between Turnbull, Abbott and Hockey where 84 people voted – Turnbull getting 26 votes, Abbott getting 35 votes and […]
