The Playboy Banker sinks as Shorten rises

Great effort by the playboy banker…

But he’s such a good communicator! So much better than Tony Abbott! Unless Abbott goes we’ll lose the election!

The one thought that keeps me going in all this is that if Turnbull loses in July, we will never, ever, see or hear from him again.

He won’t care, though. He’ll just go back to his harbourside mansion and carry on with his privileged life, whilst the rest of us have to deal with the disastrous consequences of a Shorten Labor government.

Bill Shorten’s standing with ­voters has jumped to a 12-month high, underpinning Labor’s election-winning lead in Newspoll as Malcolm Turnbull’s support has continued to tumble.

The latest Newspoll, taken ­exclusively for The Australian, shows that after the first two weeks of the election campaign the government has been unable to claw back Labor’s two-party-preferred lead of 51 per cent to the ­Coalition’s 49 per cent.

And the massive approval ­enjoyed by the Prime Minister in the early months after he replaced Tony Abbott last September has been wiped out, with Mr Turnbull’s net satisfaction rating now the same as for the Opposition Leader, at -12 points.

With six weeks to go until polling day, the Newspoll represents a two-party swing against the government of 4.5 per cent.

If ­repeated on election day with a uniform swing, it would suggest about 23 Coalition seats would be lost and Mr Shorten would lead a Labor government with a narrow majority.

Slaps forehead.
