Negative Jeering from RWNJs leads to collapse in Turnbull support
In contrast to his smarmy, smug demeanour of self-satisfaction, the latest Newspoll dished up by that Murdoch rag “The Australian” has Malcolm Turnbull’s satisfaction careering into negative territory for the first time.
The poll shows satisfaction with Turnbull’s performance at 39%, a considerable slide of five points in the last fortnight, and dissatisfaction at 44%, up by three points.
The net satisfaction rating at minus five points is the first time Turnbull’s approval has fallen into negative territory as Prime Minister.
It marks a significant deterioration from the glory days back in November when the Prince of Point Piper enjoyed net approval rating of 38 points and voter satisfaction with his performance was riding high at 60%
The results come up as the PM, who, once seen as the moderate voice of the Liberal – National Party coalition, surrendered to the rabid right wing religious nutjobs’ recent demands to overhaul the widely popular Safe Schools anti-bullying program.
The pathetic capitulation, represents not just a defeat of the rights of all school children to enjoy an education in an environment that is free of physical and emotional harassment and intimidation, but also confirms that the bullies have won.
It’s just another slap in the face for those who thought Turnbull was going to represent a departure of the bully-boy tactics employed by his predecessor Tony Abbott.
In fact, as some have suggested, it appears that the “far right” are now exercising greater unfettered power and influence under Malcolm’s vacuous so-called “leadership” than under Abbott’s train wreck of a government.
