Newspoll - Albanese

Lies, Damned Lies and Newspoll

8 September 2022


Coalition support is at record lows. So what?

COALITION Support Plunges to a Record Low,” screamed the headlines this week.

To which I reply: So what?

Sure, support for the Liberal/National Party Coalition is at just 31% — the equal lowest on record.

But Anthony Albanese won government five minutes ago, and the next election isn’t due until 2025.

Useless Tripe

Mr Albanese has spent his five minutes in the sun hosting a talkfest that will provide everyone with well-paid jobs, spruiking something or other that’s going to do this or that for Indigenous people, and selling electric vehicles.

Oh, and he drinks beers at concerts.

And hangs out with NBA stars.

So no, the punters aren’t running into the arms of Liberal leader Peter Dutton… yet.

And besides, people are still venting their anger at Scott Morrison.

Economic Fallout

Let’s see how the polls look after Labor’s policies start to kick in.

Mortgage stress, surging power prices and potential electricity blackouts have a way of focusing voters’ minds.

Throw in the return of ugly industrial disputes, tax increases and demands for increasingly obscene climate fetish action and the polls will quickly shift.

Remember Kevin 07?

Mr Rudd maintained a phenomenal approval rating — peaking at 71% five months after his election victory — for well over a year.

And we all know how that turned out.

Newspolls at this stage of the election cycle are only slightly more relevant than Shaquille O’Neal’s take on the Voice to Parliament.
