Labour’s caucus should look to Australia as the first polls show a bit of a lift for Labor after Rudd rolled Gillard.
Labor will get some heart from this poll, although it’s still behind and the sample is very small (1000):
According to the Galaxy poll, taken exclusively for News Limited papers, Mr Rudd is considered the better choice for prime minister by 51 per cent of voters compared with Tony Abbott’s 34 per cent.
The Labor Party is also back in the electoral fight with a two-party preferred result of 49 per cent to the Coalition’s 51 per cent.
The other post-Rudd-rise polls:
Reachtel: Labor 48, Coalition 52.
Morgan: Labor 49.5, Coalition 50.5.
The ALP decided they’d like a chance at continuing in government as opposed to being bundled out for a very long time. Labour here needs to think about whether or not they want another 3 years in opposition….or do they change their leader come spring time?
