Turnbull continues to out-perform Labor rival Shorten

DUMPING Tony Abbott for Malcolm Turnbull continues to pay off for the Coalition.

The latest Fairfax-Ipsos poll shows opposition leader Bill Shorten has lost more ground when it comes to Australia’s preferred Prime Minister.

Labor’s primary vote has plummeted to 30 per cent against the coalition’s 45 per cent, compared to 38-36 two months ago.


When it comes to Mr Turnbull’s performance in his new role, 68 per cent of respondents approve, with 17 per cent not happy.

Things aren’t so rosy for Mr Shorten, who only received a 32 per cent approval rating, with 56 per cent disapproving of how the opposition leader is handling things.
