It seems that Wikileaks is widely and wildly popular in Australia. Taking a sample of respondents adjusted for voting intention 65 percent approved of the organisation and only 18 percent disapproved, with a net positive in every major voting bloc. However, there were wrinkles, with less than 50 percent of Liberal and National voters approving. Approval was also around 5 points less strong for the release of the US diplomatic cables and disapproval 7 percentage points higher.
