Latest Newspoll shows Tony Abbott’s Popularity Crashes Right Across Australia

April 6, 2015

  • Tony Abbott’s approval dives right across Australia
  • Now Universally hated in every Australian State
  • Leadership spill speculation resurfaces as PM’s leadership considered a train wreck

***AN EXLCUSIVE GUTTER TRASH EXCLUSIVE RESEARCH INVESTIGATIVE POLL ANALYSIS REPORT!!!***

Supporters of Australia’s raw onion eating Prime Minister Abbott were buoyed by the last Newspoll that showed a small bounce in Mr Abbott’s approval rating.

However that glimmer of hope has all but evaporated with a new Newspoll published today confirming that the PM’s net approval rating has dived 35 points since Christmas and that Mr Abbott now lags Bill Shorten as better Prime Minister in all States for the first time.

The only bright spot for the Prime Minister in the poll is in the bogan State of Queensland, where support for the Abbott government has risen to a 12-month high.

South Australia tells a different story, where satisfaction with Mr Abbott’s performance has fallen to 19 per cent – the worst rating for any Prime Minister in any State for 20 years.

South Australia, home State of Christopher “the fixer” Pyne has witnessed a litany of Coalition blunders from confusion over the Government’s so-called “competitive ovulation process” for the construction of Australia’s next submarine fleet, and voter anger over auto industry assistance being promised, cut, then partially reinstated again, long after the horse has bolted.

According to the Newspoll, support for the Coalition in WA has fallen six points since Christmas to 38 per cent, giving the party its lowest primary vote in the State for 15 years.

In contrast, Labor’s primary vote in Western Australia has risen seven points to 37 per cent, a five-year high, giving it a two-party lead of 54 per cent to 46 per cent.

In Queensland, the Abbott government is tied with Labor on a two-party preferred basis, while Labor leads in Victoria by 59-41 and South Australia by 53-47.

In NSW, where Coalition Premier Mike Baird recently secured a resounding State election victory, Labor has a two-party preferred lead of 54 per cent to the Abbott government’s 46 per cent.

Bill Shorten, meanwhile, is now rated better Prime Minister in all Australian States.

The Opposition Leader is ahead of Mr Abbott 40-31 in Western Australia, 49-30 in Victoria, 40-36 in Queensland, 44-35 in NSW and 46-33 in South Australia.

    Well whatever is the question, Labor is not the answer.

    The only good thing about the ALP winning the next election is that the loss of our AAA credit rating will occur under the next govts watch.

    Yeah lets go back to Rudd, Gillard, Rudd the authors of all our current problems.

    The ALP is great in Opposition but they are hopeless in govt.

  6. April 6, 2015 1:05 pm

    Lol typical of a Lieberal sycophant, the ones who are hopeless in government are right there. Who has presided over a collapse in the Australian $? Who has presided in a collapse in the interest rate after Labor had put it on track for at least a .5% increase but then dropped because of the Liberals destroying the economy? Who has presided over further drops in consumer confidence? Not Labor.

    Our country was doing far better under Gillard and Rudd before your mates came in and started wrecking the joint

    A world far away from tony abbott and his cronies.

    Still driving around the tassie west coast, been on the franklin-gordon cruise, to cradle mountain, a stay in the gorgeous tree tops of lemonthyme lodge, now in strahan.

    Totally blissed out, if only I could live here forever [bit cold in winter though]

    so, `mr-rabbit now lags blib as better prime meddler in all states` says (limited)news-poll, l don`t know what is more amazing,

    1.that limited news-poll is actually `reporting` it,

    2.all states are now enjoying mr-rabbits prime meddlership,

    critics like wilson over-look the quality international grandstanding mr-rabbit has done for our nation attending meet-ups for war-talk and blame delegation at every international disaster or plane crash, showing the world the caliber of canberra as both a military force and intellectual force

    +

    how can critics like wilson totally ignore mr-rabbits masterful successes as minister for women, where he has crashed thru the perspex walls of gentlemans clubs to host womens events, fortified his own office in defence of his female staff, and smashed thru the ply-wood walls of cabinet to double the female ministry, surely with such great achievements, all women would choose mr-rabbit to represent her

  11. April 6, 2015 6:13 pm

    on my abc, l just saw tony windsor quacking on teh-drum and said a couple of interesting things, while talking about mr-rabbits woes in getting things passed thru senate,

    +

    windsor pointed out that nick-xeno is seen by the public as a `voice-of-reason`, and, because both big-teams engage in too much nonsense, easily 30%-of-voters are looking `else-where` to cast their vote,

    +

    windsor also pointed out the shabby treatment of boatpeople is a failure to the refugees `and` the country, by both `teams`, from 3-word-slogans to current circumstances and policy, there is (no `decent`) only shameful behavior

    So did you TB.

    Did you apply and get accepted or did you just barge in?

    I really hate these feel good comments about how bad we are to boat people. How about taking your opinions to its logical conclusion. What would people say if we were getting 100,000/year? If people think that is OK well lets allow that to happen.

    One problem is that refugees from UNHCR camps, you know the ones we used to take under Howard, have no money to pay their way to Australia.

    Don’t worry at all about rape, child abuse, torture and death while in our custody.

    It’s happening now. We already have open borders for trade, we got globalised a long time ago and with the new TPP’s our govt is even more determined for us to be totally owned by corporations. The logical conclusion to the open borders policy for trade is open borders for people, which we already have, the 457 work visas are an open border policy aren’t they?

    Quick, look over there at boat people! Don’t notice the huge immigration in foreign workers! They want minimum wage labour to drive down wages and conditions here, great for profits, but dare anyone think we can also be a safe haven for the human misery that arrives following the wars that we are also an eager participant in!

    Now we’ve got the nazi’s and the RWNJ christians/white supremists demonstrating in the streets.

    Perhaps we should close the country up again, protect and insulate us from all foreigners and we can stop being afraid and go back to hating our first peoples.

    As some have said on twitter

    By coincidencement, I was watching a BBC documentary on YouTube last night about the rise of racism/white supremacy in the UK.

    While a large percentage of them are redneck nutters, there were a couple of well spoken elderly types who genuinely fear the growing Islamic presence in their local communities.

    Especially when things can happen in ordinary streets in broad daylight – like the recent beheading of two British soldiers in London.

    Sobering stuff.

    For once i agree with you. I was involved in Australian science and the market is flooded with Eastern European scientists. They get paid $12K/year in Moscow and $90K/year in Australia. Worse they can speak English since all scientific papers have to be published in English no matter what country you are from.

    It is heart breaking. I have many friends who busted their guts to get a PhD to do research into say cancer but cannot get a job because 20,000 scientists from Russia/Poland/Ukraine/China want a job in Australia.

    Lots of those asylum seekers who fly in are foreign students/workers who after arriving apply for asylum because they like it here so much. I love immigration but we generally do not do skilled immigration in this country

    I know I should never intimidate the Blogmeister but in the interests of truth and the Aussie way … it was one British soldier that two terrorists attempted to behead … (unless there has been another incident I’m unaware of ?) …

    coincidencement? Cool dude! 🙂

    “those fkn Russian scientists who want to better their lives and “worse” can speak English”

    Not too sure what to say about that comment. But why do a research degree in this country if all the jobs are going to the Eastern Europeans. Furthermore they are difficult people to work with. They come from a different culture. Even furthermore they are willing to work for half wages. 45K/year in Sydney is still better than 12K/year in Moscow.

    It is not fair for our young kids to put up with crap like that. Bosses like the Russians because they are very obedient and will do things nobody in this country would do.

    Obviously you do not care about people. It is not good for our country to have all our scientific researchers from overseas.

    I was on the coast over easter. Lots of people from every ethnic background having picnics and enjoying the break. It’s a great ad for multiculturalism.

    On the other hand, I really don’t understand those that arrive in the most liveable city in the world and want to change it into a place more like the one they fled.

    I’m getting to the point of having a “f**k off then” attitude towards them.

    “Loveable” (typo but I left it!) country, ToM … a brave new world exists outside of Mexico City …

    I’m inclined to agree … I tell people I spent the first 12 years of my life in the wrong country – nothing to do with me … my family could never understand why 10 quid Poms whinged so much and went back to the UK after their two year compulsory stay … The Minister’s family (Dutch) felt the same way …

    See what the Americans have to put up with

    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/apr/6/illegal-immigrant-children-surge-across-border-at-/

    The second wave of unaccompanied illegal immigrant children has begun, with more than 3,000 of them surging across the Mexican border into the U.S. last month — the highest rate since the peak of last summer’s crisis and a warning that another rough season could be ahead.

    It is a problem. I guess we would be doing the same thing if we were in the same situation.

    But what really pisses me off are the Russian scientists. Russia is a military superpower with more natural resources than most. Lots of oil and gas which they sell to Western Europe and the Australian taxpayer has to give scores of their scientists jobs while our own young people are unemployed.

    THE political crisis that has engulfed the federal parliament for the past 18 months will lead Australia down a “road of economic despair”, the nation’s leading industry and business groups have warned in an unprecedented call to action.

    It’s time to stop the political grandstanding and do some genuine cost cutting and revenue raising.

    • Target multinationals that use transfer pricing to avoid tax
    • Get rid of 10% of the federal public service and another r10% in 12 months
    • Pay $15 to go to local GP
    • Work for the dole, work for the disability pension, work for all welfare except the old age pension
    • Raise the GST to 15% on everything and don’t worry too much about compensating everyone except old aged pensioners

    YES! YES! YES! Heard on my car radio … magic stuff …

    I was on the way home from helping a friend with a new computer I bought for him … and heard the news … (he’s 86 and still works as an accountant and just reduced his clients to 70!) …

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    …work for all welfare except the old age pension

    Thanks ToM!

    … if you do the calculations based on the ACOSS “suggestions” re: aged pensions and the present calculations (try $400,000) – SFR’s would tell ya – why did I fkn bother … most end up living on the same as a pensioner who has no super at all – $33,000 – or in reality – LESS! …

    This country is advised and controlled by fkn morons who wouldn’t pass a grade five NAPLAN assessment!

    Just who IS, ACOSS working for? The Liberal Fascist Government’s plan was actually better!

    Economically conservative … Hilariously the polar opposite of what both major parties claim to be… The ALP is at least socially progressive for the most part.. NBN, NDIS, Medicare, Education, superannuation as opposed to the fiberals with their social engineering and Hokeynomics

    Xylophone has made the suggestion that instead of reducing the age pension by $1.50 per fortnight, if a couple is over the “threshold” (as it is now) – currently $270,000 in assets (car, home contents, investments, bank A/C, superannuation) … and you own your home – not included – (renters get more assistance than home owners) …

    So a couple with assets of $400,000 (not very hard to reach – if you check your own) is $130,000 over the threshold and will lose $1.50 x 130 = $195 per fortnight … they will receive, as a couple, $28,000 pa pension …

    Under Xylophone’s plan that the government are looking at, the same couple will lose $3.00 per $1000 … or … receive $22,860 …

    … now I don’t know about you but $7000 a year is a lot of money to lose … especially when the people being targeted are the one’s who have a bit of super to supplement the age pension … and with investment returns pretty low there’s not much to supplement it with …

    A Kiwi friend of mine keeps on telling me that in NZ people are paid their age pension no matter what assets they own …

    So why don’t we ask politicians to declare how many properties they claim negative gearing on and/or trust funds they dip into … of course we know they will get post pollie perqs!

    And why does The MAD Abbott and Acolytes seem so determined to make the poorer end of town poorer all the time?
