Gillard’s polling woes continue

This time it is the latest Roy Morgan poll:



Last weekend’s multi-mode Morgan Poll shows support for the L-NP increasing to 57% (up 2.5% since March 14-17, 2013) cf. ALP 43% (down 2.5%) on a two-party preferred basis.

The L-NP primary vote is 46.5% (up 0.5%) clearly ahead of the ALP 30.5% (down 2.5%). Among the minor parties Greens support is 10.5% (unchanged) and Independents/ Others are 12.5% (up 2%).

If a Federal Election were held today the L-NP would easily win the election according to today’s multi-mode Morgan Poll on Federal voting intention conducted over the last few days, March 21-24, 2013 with an Australia-wide cross-section of 3,494 Australian electors aged 18+.

Most of the drop in support for the ALP was amongst men — the ALP primary vote for men dropped 4.5% to 27% while for women the ALP primary vote dropped by only 0.5% to 34%.

    I see Rudd has been given the name of a popular dish, chicken kev.

    Another labour party trying to say it is factional infighting and destructive politicing that is the reason for their demise…..NO.. It’s incompetent management, failed policy and just good old fashioned dishonesty. In other words they have failed to do the job they were employed for and hopefully just like clarke and blaire they will be fired.

    ALP are totally discredited in Aus, Gillard is a dead man walking, now bring on the corruption inquiry into her Slater & Gordon past.

    It is frightening to think Gillard would still be in with a chance if there were an MMP system in place; Mr Key has done a disservice to NZ in not abolishing MMP so we would have election results similar to the September 2013 one in Aussie.

    Of course, the real reason to try and get rid of Gillard is because she is going after the powerful child abuse gangs. If these gangs can’t vote her out, they might have a shot at giving her cancer or something next. Keep an eye open. A lot of what is showing up now is in the Catholic church, but that is nothing. The non-catholic child sex abuse networks behind the scenes are worse.

    I say, Bravo, Julia Gillard, for standing up to the child abuse networks!
    Soon to start, thanks to Julia Gillard, is the new Royal Commission on Child Sex Abuse.

    “Alarm bells were ringing there for me many, many years ago, so much so
    that I actually detailed a number of reports to hierarchy within the
    Police Department to launch fuller investigations.
    It was quite evident that something was going on. These priests were operating in
    adjoining parishes abusing children, they were meeting at meetings
    together. In many cases that I came across, one priest who had
    previously faced paedophile charges was donating parish money to the
    legal support of another priest to defend him against those charges.
    I had other priests that hadn’t been charged with anything removing
    evidence and destroying it before we were able to secure it. And we just
    went around in circles.”

    TONY JONES: … as horrific as the litany of sexual crimes
    against children are, to me one of the most disturbing lines in your
    letter was along these lines:
    “I can testify from my own experience the Church covers up, silences
    victims, hinders police investigations, alerts offenders, destroys
    evidence and moves priests to protect the good name of the Church.”
    You’re saying you have evidence of all of this?

    PETER FOX: Oh, not only do I have evidence,
    it’s irrefutable. Most of that is fact that’s been admitted
    by many of them. We encounter it all the time. For people to sit back
    and say it’s not going on, they’ve got their head in the sand.
    The greatest frustration is that there is so much power and
    organisation behind the scenes. The child abuse network is meshed
    right into organisations offering caring for children…
