Bill Shorten is popular somewhere…
Bill Shorten’s popularity has soared to a remarkable 15% representing a 50% increase on the tolerance afforded to Julia Gillard when she was unceremoniously dumped as leader on 29%.
This means the Federal Labor leader is essentially a hollow cadaver of a man, occupying a space that 85% of Australians would prefer to be occupied by vacant space.
Meanwhile Talcum Turnbull continues to enjoy a stratospheric level of public adulation, unseen since former Labor leader Kevin Rudd vied for the top job back in 2007.
With Talcum in charge, the latest Newspoll shows the government comfortably ahead of Labor on the two-party preferred basis, leading 52 to 48, and recording a primary vote of 45 per cent against Labor’s 35 per cent.
Shorten’s leadership is now not just terminal, but already clinically dead, recording the worst result for a Labor leader in 12 years.
