    It wasn't well put tbf.

    Because Essential averages out two weeks worth of polling, any actual trend is larger the second week than the first (if that makes sense). Anyway, it was a good week for Labor politically, with Qantas bringin up IR and the rate cut. Newspoll tonight may be interesting, then again, the usual hacks were yapping up a Ruddstoration piece over the weekend, in anticiaption of it.

    Who knows?

    Nah it's because you swapped the two numbers by accident I checked on Essential's website and it's LNP-ALP 54-46, although the +1 to the ALP is correct.

    Started about two-three weeks ago with Laura Tingle in the AFR. Oakes gave Abbott a massive spray in the Hun on the weekend too.

    That Carbon Tax legislation Tony has staked his political future on? Voted in in the Senate tomorrow.

    Tony's so amped he's on a private trip to the UK.

    I love polls. So ****ing random:

    Preferred PM: Gillard 39 (+3) Abbott 40 (+1)
    Abbott: Approval 34 (0) Disapproval 57 (+2)
    7 minutes ago
    Gillard: Approval 30 (-1) Disapproval 60 (-1)
    Work that one out.

    The electorate is torn between giving Abbott a Latham or Gillard a Keating '96.

    All the stories this morning I've heard are about Abbott's dissatisfaction rating.

    God the press have the biggest pack mentality. You just knew once Oakes went ape on him, the rest would start to follow.

    It's a dodgy measure in that of course voters a decent group on the other side of the fence will always vote in dissatisfaction, there is only 10-15% the coalition would have to worry about.

    If the ALP thesis on Abbott ('Mr No') is correct he can't improve this rating because it would involve changing his mind to satisfy this 10-15% and in doind so take many of the ALP's policies and hence show the cognative dissonance that exists in voter land where they are choosing to ignore Labor rather than judge them on policy merit.

    I don't buy that fully. A huge number of people don't like Bob Brown, Gillard as a PM, leadership speculation or the carbon tax.

    Not a real big fan of the super change, or would at least prefer it to be voluntary as the $30 a week in the pocket is handy when saving, at least as an option when you are under 30.
