Preferred Prime Ministers


It's not good news for Julia Gillard, who can't win either of her head to heads, and qualified good news for Rudd who can just beat Abbott. It's also reasonable for Tony Abbott who is competitive against either Rudd or Gillard, but it is very good news for Malcolm Turnbull.

When Turnbull was leader of the Liberal Party, particularly at first, we found a lot of respondents who approved of him, but preferred Kevin Rudd as Prime Minister. They liked Turnbull, but he was in the wrong party, and there was little differentiation between him and Rudd. Now Rudd's star has obviously waned substantially, and even the fact that Turnbull is a Liberal does not appear to damage his preferred Prime Minister standing.

Turnbull is in favour of Carbon Tax. He is easily mislead by the Climate Change Scam.
I would Prefer Tony Abott or Joe Hockey in terms of sincerity to Malcolm Turnbul

Abbott is a dangerous fool. He is ignorant and a naysayer. He is not only misleading those who listen to him about Climate change but also about most of what is good for Australia in this current Global Economic climate. He is a poor Opposition leader. We need a good strong opposition, with a leader who is intelligent, well read, caring and compassionate. Abbott fails on every score of how our Country should be helped now and for the future.

One of the greatest moments in my life would be to see Paul Keating rip shreds of Tony Abbott in the Parliamentary chamber. Showing the Australian public what an ineffectual and totally out of his depth Opposition Leader Tony Abbott really is. Love him or hate him...but Paul Keating was the MASTER of the floor.

I am a much older fogy and give me Tony any day of the week. Juk to Paul Keatign and as for Julia Gillard, I think she is one of the most hated women in Australia. I do not not of one person who has a good word to say about her.

Mal Turnbull has the qualities of a great leader. What is even more striking is the fact he is sincere, understands the sentiments of all Australians, holds progressive views, understands & is supportive of the business communities and has moral courage. If he stood as Liberal Leader, a significant section of Labour supporters would vote for him.
-1 #6 Malcolm Turnbull for Prime MinisterChris 2012-09-20 22:54
Malcolm Turnbull has won me over completely. I have been a Labor supporter all my voting life, however if Malcolm Turnbull was to be Opposition Leader then I would switch and vote Liberal. Tony Abbott has proven himself to be untrustworthy, a glory seeker and a liar. It will be a sad day for Australia if Abbot ever becomes Prime Minister.
