Gillard’s satisfaction rating drops even further


Published

Satisfaction rating for Prime Minister Julia Gillard has dropped to 30% according to a Newspoll opinion poll published in The Australian newspaper today. Those dissatisfied with her performance as prime minister has increased to 55%.

Support for her party, the Australian Labor Party is hardly any better. The poll shows them on 31% support where their support level in the 2010 election was 38%.

However, there is little personal comfort for opposition leader, Tony Abbott, in the poll. His satisfaction rating is just 35% and his dissatisfaction rating is 52%, very little difference to that of the PM.

And when voters were asked who would make the better prime minister, 41% said Gillard and 38% said Abbott.

However, Tony Abbott can gain some comfort in the poll for his National Coalition. The stand on 46% compared with 43.6% in the 2010 election. In a straight fight with Labor, the National Coalition would take 55% to Labor’s 45%.
