Bill Shorten’s popularity tumbles to lowest level

Latest polling figures are the best for the Coalition in nearly two years while Bill Shorten’s popularity continues to tumble.

The poll published in The Australian on Tuesday, shows only 15 per cent of Australians would prefer to have Mr Shorten as prime minister. That’s compared to a massive 64 per cent in favour of Malcolm Turnbull.

It is Mr Shorten’s worst result and the lowest level for any ALP leader in an entire decade.


The Turnbull Government is maintaining its healthy lead over Labor, 52 per cent to 48 per cent on a two part preferred basis. The poll also shows the Coalition’s primary vote is at 45 per cent to Labor’s 35 per cent.
