Interesting that labor still lead the coalition in the polls, but just shows how on the nose Shorten is, when Morrison already leads him by a good margin as preferred PM.
I certainly hope Labor keep him as leader, it is the only hope the Libs have.

You have to swing 10% back in to Bill's preferred status and deduct from Scott to account for the Greens aversion to indicate any agreeableness with Labor party leaders.

Yes I guess Bill will have to come up with all sorts of reasons. Lol

Maybe it is just Bill is on the nose?

Shorten is rambler who uses about twice the number of words needed to get a point across and also goes in for un-needed dramatics that aren't necessary, but he has won 60+ Newspolls on voting intentions, so the preferred PM rating is pretty well irrelevant.

There's that, but what's not to like about a man who knifed two of his captains?

It will be interesting to watch what happens, if The Libs start pegging back Labor in the polls, that would really cause angst.
Like I said at least Morrison has a chance, Turnbull was a dud from the start.IMO

But he won every preferred PM poll against Shorten. So how relevant is that measure ?
Scott is a Pentecostal tambourine banger isn't he? That should be interesting when it comes to supporting legislation dealing with sinful acts.

He's certainly speaking in another tongue when I've heard him. :)

Well Morrison has won his first preferred PM outing, against Shorten, by as much as Turnbull did.
So I suppose it is more a measure of Shortens unpopularity, than a measure of the his opponents popularity.
Therefore as I mentioned, the trend of the opposing parties popularity will be more relevant, Shorten's popularity is going nowhere.
It will hinge on how well Morrison, puts the Libs case, over to the public. IMO

With both parties knifing their leaders in the back does it matter which clown you pick?
When were the adults showing up?

If they were adults, they would be doing a real job, not playing at the "running a Country pantomime".IMO
That applies to all sides of politics.

Ask yourselves ( or answer me) who becomes a Politician? Other than the Jackie Lambies who probably couldn't earn as much elsewhere, who would put themselves up for the scrutiny and harassment that M.P.s face?

I guess this possible liberal candidate, thinks it is a big waste of time, hope he gets to regret his decision. If some one is genuine, you don't pull out, you get in there and make a statement.
This is the whole problem with politics, they have increased the pay to attract "better" people, when in really all you need to attract is "genuine" people, who have their heart in the game not their pockets. IMO

Obviously there is a foregone conclusion becoming apparent.

If you stay a backbencher most of your career, you avoid most of the scrutiny, get a reasonable wage and a nice pension scheme later on.

Most pollies are there for genuine reasons,but quite a few just want a sinecure.

Nice to see you class $200k as a reasonable wage, wish silly billy could see that self funded retirees on $60k, aren't really killing the pig.
Yet him and puppy Bowen are really targeting them.
Actually I've been a bit disappointed with Bowen, he seemed to have some potential as shadow minister for immigration, but Shorten seems to have brought him to heal.
Sad really, but I guess that is how it all works.

Wentworth candidate has been stripped of pre selection because he's male ...... stacking the parliament with popular breed drovers dogs is the new norm.

Actually he voluntarily stepped aside as I understand it.
