From The Australian:
Labor is facing the same devastating defeat that it suffered at the last federal election, as Bill Shorten’s standing with voters as the alternative prime minister has tumbled to the lowest level for any ALP leader in more than a decade.
The latest Newspoll, taken exclusively for The Australian, reveals Labor’s primary vote has fallen to 33 per cent. Support for the opposition has slumped six points since Malcolm Turnbull replaced Tony Abbott 10 weeks ago and is back to the same level as the 2013 poll, which was the ALP’s worst election result in 80 years.
And from Mark the Ballot, betting markets are now pricing no contest:
A further movement to the Coalition in the betting market for the next election.

Give the Kinglayer’s back-stabbing of two PMs help bring in the Labor Party’s new leadership ballot rules that make it very difficult to topple a sitting leader, it is only fair that he now slay himself.
