But he’s so much better at communicating! He’s got a much better vision for the economy! He’s just so much more popular than Tony! He respects the intelligence of the people! Um…
Voter confidence in Malcolm Turnbull’s performance has tumbled to a five-month low and dissatisfaction with the Prime Minister has reached the highest level since he seized the leadership from Tony Abbott in September.
The latest Newspoll, taken exclusively for The Australian, also shows that despite stronger than expected economic growth figures last week and the release of its defence white paper, the Coalition has failed to lift its standing, remaining deadlocked with Labor at 50-50 in two-party terms.
Bill Shorten has posted the third consecutive rise in his stocks, lifting satisfaction with his performance to a level not seen since Mr Abbott was prime minister, although Mr Turnbull still remains overwhelmingly the preferred prime minister. (source)
Indecisive, vacuous, shallow, superficial, weak, vain and self-interested. No principles, just popularity seeking. Abandons the conservative base (of which there are many) by turning up at the Mardi Gras and sharing the stage with Shorten, the Greens and the latex-clad militant queer lobby, elevating the gay marriage vote above everything else. George Brandis, what are you thinking?
And those who stood by Abbott have had a gut full of the mud-slinging and smear from the Turnbull worshippers like Niki Savva.
Whatever goodwill he may have had back in September, it has all but vanished, and Labor is looking stronger by the day.
What a fucking disaster.
