OK, so the last one was a rogue poll. Still smooth sailing.

Recent polls done by Roy Morgan shows the ALP in the lead...

If accurate, this is amazing.

Not in Australia where you either have Right-wing Newspoll or Left-wing Niellson...

Morgan is consistently about four points to the left of both Newspoll and Neilson. I suspect this is because of his insistence on face-to-face polling ensuring he over-represents urban/suburban voters and under-represents rural voters, where his polling staff would need to drive a kilometre out two from property to property. He predicted Howard would lose in his poll released the night before the 2001 election, and also that Kennett would lose, when he actually won in a landslide. Morgan has a deeply flawed methodology and the only way to credibly observe his polls is if you factor in a shift to the Coalition, like a clock that you know is always give minutes late.

Anyway, once again the Abbott train crashes with his highly offensive comment and attack on Julia Gillard's childless status.

He has 1 month.

Actually, Newspoll had Coalition 2PP at 53 in its final poll before the election. I'm not sure about Neilsen, but I'm pretty sure that of the pollsters used by the media, Morgan was the only one to predict a Beazley victory.

Morgan is a joke, I never EVER take them seriously.

Both Neilsen and Newspoll show a tightening towards the Government and Gillard pulling away as preferred PM - Abbott looks the most vulnerable he has since getting the leadership.

It's still, as it inevitably was always going to be, people being terrified of Abbott.

Maxine McKew made a little aside that I thought was actually bang-on, but i'm paraphrasing: "Abbott is about two gaffes away from being ousted".

I've fallen away from Australia of late. Why this surge?

John McTernan took over as Director of Communications.

The government has been so personally grubby and negative, which unfortunately works. The difference between the Opposition attacks and the Government's is that the Opposition focuses on policies - carbon tax, boats, budget deficits, while the Government's attacks can be summarised "Abbott is a thug/sexist" - they're playing the man, not the ball. It's a successful strategy, that's lifting the Government in the polls, but I just think it's grubby.

Oh Smiddy...

I agree with some of this, but the idea that Abbott & Co are somehow above the fray on 'personal attacks'? Come on.

Abbott has been the Coalition's Achilles' Heel... he has been the one that cannot do anything other than negativity. This close to an election, Abbott should be creating a narrative as to why THEY would be BETTER. Gillard is gaining traction for a number of reasons, 1. exploiting the general dislike and unease with Tony Abbott (and hardly lying about his previous statements) 2. the Carbon Price coming in and people realising the world has not collapsed (neutering the primary Coalition talking point) 3. Gillard looks stronger, she doesn't look as beleaguered as she did 6 months ago... Rudd's chances are gone... and she's pretty much secure in the leadership now.

Essential Research

Approval
Gillard: 41% (NC)
Abbott: 33% (-4)

Disapproval
Gillard: 49% (-2) (lowest net disapproval for nearly 2 years)
Abbott: 58% (+4) (his highest ever net disapproval)

Preferred PM
Gillard: 45%
Abbott: 32%

Primary vote
ALP: 37% (NC)
Coalition: 45% (-1)
Greens: 9% (NC)

TPP
ALP: 48%
Coalition: 52%

Issue is women are turning HARD against Abbott...

Abbott's over all net disapproval: -25
Abbott's net disapproval with women: -30

Gillard's lead as preferred PM: 13%
Gillard's lead as preferred PM with women only: 21%
