Turnbull loses 30th consecutive Newspoll

Share

However, a survey says that 62-percent still want Turnbull to remain Australia's prime minister.

And just as readily forecast, nothing will happen to his leadership as a outcome.

The Newspoll showed the Government is behind Labor on a two-party preferred basis at 48 per cent to 52 per cent, under Mr Turnbull's leadership.

"Mr Turnbull obsesses about polls, as do the National and Liberal parties".

The PM has just lost his 30th Newspoll in a row, which was one of the benchmarks he famously used to justify challenging Tony Abbott for the leadership of the Liberal Party in 2015.

Joyce said it would be a lie to say everything in the party room was fine, but he wanted to see the Prime Minister succeed, and firmly told host Peta Credlin the Coalition was a "long long way" from a spill. He said that Mr Turnbull's decision to set 30 Newspoll losses as a benchmark was "not fair".

His predecessor has deflected questions about whether Mr Turnbull should be held to the same standard of Newspoll results.

Labor's primary vote rose two points to 39 per cent support and the Coalition's went up a single point to 38 per cent.

Since his election, critics across the political spectrum have frequently cited the failure to end the insider-driven gamesmanship of Canberra, the capital, and the lack of clear leadership from Mr. Turnbull and his party.

Former prime minister John Howard urged Liberal MPs to bury their differences.

Few believe that Mr Abbott - a staunch conservative who is publicly unpopular - could achieve a comeback as leader.

However, he allowed himself the space to, for time to time, "challenge the government" on policies and priorities. "I think the other 148, if they were being honest, would tell you that if the opportunity came their way they'd be interested as well".

"There's 149 people in the federal parliament, I'm one".

Mr Abbott said the best way to be a good government was to have clear policies, a united team and to be distinct from your opponents.

Mr Morrison played down the significance of the 30th consecutive loss, saying people are focused on how much they are paying for their electricity and NBN connection, their jobs and what the future is going to mean for their families.

"I've made it a practice of not commenting on polls when the polls have been good, bad or indifferent", he told reporters in Perth at the start of a six-day tour of the West. "Or do we want to be the country Bill Shorten's offering?"

"Malcolm Turnbull and I know this better than anyone", he said. "None of us should live in the past or dwell on things".

But what they also really want is to destabilise Turnbull so that he never has a chance to recover in the polls - and so far they're doing a pretty good job of it.
