Gillard equals Keating in unpopularity

Posted by

The SMH reports that:

“Labor’s primary vote has hit a new record low of 26 per cent while Mr Abbott has opened up an 11-percentage point lead on Ms Gillard as the preferred prime minister …

Ms Gillard’s personal approval rating fell 3 points to 34 per cent and her disapproval rating rose 3 points to 62 per cent. This makes her as unpopular as Paul Keating during his final term in office

Gillard speaks, but doesn’t achieve even the first of these three.



    1. true. PM does funny things to folks. it was the ruin of Keating too — if he didn’t have Hewson to enjoy thrashing he probably could not have got out of bed for the end of his first term.

      i think folks struggle with success as much (or more) than disappointment.
