Coalition suffers worst opinion poll result since 2011

December 10, 2013

7661e8e6-5b7c-11e3-9fee-095d56d17880_784367241--646x363

After three months in government, support for Coalition falls to its lowest level in nearly three years.

According to the latest Newspoll, Labor now leads on preferences for the first time since Julia Gillard was elected prime minister.

After three months of an Abbott-led government, more voters are dissatisfied with the prime minister than satisfied.

Labor’s two-party-preferred support has jumped five percentage points to put the ALP in front 52% to 48%.

The Coalition’s primary vote fell three percentage points to 40%, while Labor’s rose three points to 38%.

Labor’s primary vote is back to the level it was in July, just after Kevin Rudd replaced Gillard as prime minister.

Voters are also now more satisfied with the way Opposition Leader Bill Shorten is doing his job than Prime Minister Tony Abbott, the Newspoll found.

Voter satisfaction with the Prime Minister fell two percentage points to 40 per cent, while dissatisfaction rose three percentage points to 45 per cent, giving a negative personal satisfaction rating of minus five.

Mr Shorten’s satisfaction rating jumped to 44 per cent, while dissatisfaction was unchanged at 27 per cent. Mr Abbott remains preferred prime minister but his lead over Mr Shorten has narrowed again to 41 per cent to 34 per cent.

The shift towards Labor, first recorded in the November 25 Nielsen poll, began before Education Minister Christopher Pyne was forced to backtrack after saying he would dump Labor’s Gonski schools funding program.

Other pollsters have found that women are shifting away from the Coalition much faster than men.

THE ABBOTT GOVT’S AMAZING SUCCESS STORY!

The dramatic fall from favour may be attributed to the Government’s track record of success stories it has achieved in the space of the last three months:

  • Bungling the relationship with Indonesia
  • Offending China
  • Attempting to destroy Gonski then performing a major triple backflip somersault
  • Hiding the boats
  • That climate change crap
  • Abandoning Holden
  • Something about Qantas

It’s the comedy show that doesn’t stop giving!

    So they weren’t actually given a mandate at all, for anything … it was all about the stupidity of the ALP leadership squabbling amongst themselves and the voters wanted ’em to just piss off and let someone else have a go … who woulda thunk …

    So the LibNits got up and a go and – in the scheme of things – immediately fkd it up too …

    Seems, Tony About & The Shadow Men, have finally been recognised by the voters for what they are … although I can’t see any leadership standouts ANYWHERE in parliament … maybe a chance here for the PUP!

    Go Clivey!

    Interesting how the amazing invisible opposition leader is still gaining ground on the amazing invisible prime minister. Could it be that people are actually looking at policies and outcomes for the first time in years?

    “Could it be that people are actually looking at policies and outcomes for the first time in years?”

    Not sure if people are that engaged to look at policies, but they can definitely see the results, and three months in the Abbott govt has been a complete shambles..

    The main points of interest, where they went wrong.

    The monk should have said sorry to bam bang no matter what the Canberra mandarins demanded, we cannot confirm or deny.

    With the Chinese, Bishop should have taken a non-aligned position and said nothing.

    The Gonski backflip had consequences and was dumb.

    The boats disappeared because Kev moved the goal posts and Indonesia clamped down on Iranian tourists.

    The climate change thingy has been muddied by inaction, which may eventually help him extricate the Coalition before the next election.

    Qantas and Holden mean nothing to incoming waves of immigrants who pay taxes and vote, so that’s a winner.

  11. December 10, 2013 1:34 pm

    Hmmmm, how about the 200,000 related jobs (just in the auto industry- let alone QANTAS) which will go with Holden?

    Pretty sure not too many of those voters would be thanking the government (rightly or wrongly).

    People need to realise, it’s much bigger than just Holden. Holden doesn’t make its own parts.

    Can’t be helped, subsidising Holden is no longer an option and Qantas has to survive on its own merits.

  14. December 10, 2013 3:47 pm

    I agree that it probably can’t be helped, but the negative impact upon public opinion which it will have shouldn’t be entirely dismissed.

    It would be a shit sandwich without sauce for certain, not negligible proportions of the electorate to swallow irrespective of who is in government. It was/is bound to happen on someone’s watch; that appears to be Anthony Arsehat.

    Holden going arse-up will probably be the final nail in SA Labor’s coffin. Honestly, the ALP has been in power in SA for too long & has enacted some extremely arrogant shit upon regional populations over the last decade.

    #Qantas, Govt. should `unfetter` the bullshit ownership restrictions. lf we don`t need to own and run our telecoms, (which is much more important,) then we don`t need to dabble in airlines.

    That number is way over-blown and many years old. Holden`s nipple-grab for welfare to assemble foreign-made parts on our soil is not to our benefit, and Holden will definitely go, along with the rest of teh-auto-industry sooner or later.

    Re Holden: I recall similar arguments being made for every manufacturer (including my indirect employer – Nissan) when their plants closed.

    And a similar hue and cry when Bob Hawkes lot first gave Kodak a cool million to stay on in Melbourne – even though digital imaging was showing processed film the door – and then klunk, Kodak shut its doors and pissed off … they’ve just been resurrected from bankruptcy I believe …

    Life moves on … Holden and Ford have never been Australian … if they were they would probably build cars that the majority of Australians prefer … instead of Yank and European rip-offs … GM and Ford don’t give a toss …

    … piss ’em off and start up a steam car company … steam is the most effecient engine ever designed – up to 70% energy efficient … and and enclosed steam engine (recirculating the same water) just keeps on giving!

    Having actually worked for 18months for a components manufacturer in the past, and having related knowledge of that & other components manufacturers in Adelaide alone, I must say…

    I quite like the notion that young people can pursue a technical career outside mining or construction.

    If Qantas and motor vehicle manufacturing are lost, that’s about it with apprentices, engineers, trades etc unless people wish to find work in mining or construction.

    Therefore I’m a reluctant supporter of continuing government support for Holden, subject to them showing some willingness to embrace real reform.

    With regard to Qantas- lift the ceiling on foreign investment, and get the chain dragging unions out of the way.

    lf there was all the `flow-on` Dunny, Holden/Union would not be blubbering FOR said welfare, year after year after year.

    Really 730, you’re such a goose most of the time.

    I said the same thing when the ALP was in government. It isn’t simply the wages that stifle manufacturing. It is the overlay of unreliability, the constant threat of labour disruption, particularly when manufacturers plan their overhaul and shutdown maintenance. Union claims often aren’t advanced by the permanent workforce, the pressure is applied when the annual shutdown is on.

    The uninformed often blame underinvestment for the state of manufacturing, and that’s true, but our reputation for hopelessly unreliable upgrade and construction is a big reason for the investment reluctance.

    On second thoughts, they could invite Siemens in to build VFT. In the US they are demanding that their fast rail trains be built at home.

    Dec. 01–SACRAMENTO — ‘California has yet to break ground on its controversial high-speed train system, and legal challenges remain in the path of construction.

    ‘But that’s not stopping the California High-Speed Rail Authority, in conjunction with Amtrak, from shopping around for the best deal on multimillion-dollar trains to roll on their proposed high-speed lines — in California between San Francisco and Los Angeles through the San Joaquin Valley, and Amtrak’s Acela service between Boston and Washington, D.C.

    ‘Together, the two agencies are preparing to ask for bids in coming weeks from manufacturers to build between 50 and 60 train sets capable of carrying passengers at speeds up to 220 mph.

    ‘From a 34-acre plant in southeast Sacramento, Siemens Industry is one of a handful of multinational companies with an eye on the prize — a contract for “rolling stock” potentially worth $2 billion or more.’

    Warren Truss said he had written to Holden boss Mike Devereux today calling on him to urgently clarify whether or not the company will shut up shop in Australia.

    The production peak of the Elizabeth factory of 165,000 cars in 2004 has been halved, with Holden on track to build just 84,000 vehicles this year.

    The biggest export year was 2008, when Holden shipped 56,000 cars, mostly to the US, when the Australian dollar was worth $US0.84.

    Exports have fallen sharply since the Australian dollar reached close to parity; just 13,000 cars were exported last year, about 16 per cent of Holden’s local production.

    Add this to TB`s quote.
    The cost benefit may not look so good.

    I agree that poor industrial relations is a result of poor management, but this is usually expedient management of an earlier generation. When contemporary management, such as Joyce, try to restore some balance into the relationship, the union and their barrackers go into a complete frenzy.
