Latest Polls Show Abbott Government Heading For A Wipe Out, Shorten & Labor Ahead
The latest set of polls indicate how much of a failure the Abbott government has been. While Abbott conducts his token visit to remote indigenous communities the latest polls show Abbott trailing behind Labor leader Bill Shorten by 5 points.
This disastrous result for Abbott is the lowest approval rating the Prime Minister has ever received. Treasurer Joe Hockey has dismissed the latest polls saying it’s nothing he hasn’t seen before and believes the government can bounce back.
The latest newspoll comes days after more bad news for Abbott when a Galaxy poll over the weekend showed that the coalition would be wiped out in Queensland. The poll of 800 Queenslanders also found the Coalition’s primary vote had dropped to 41% – 3% down since the last poll in May poll and nearly 6% since the 2013 election.
The Latest Roy Morgan poll has confidence in the Government heading in the right direction at just 40%.
