NB: Sample = 1,740. The data in the above tables comprise 2-week averages derived from the first preference/leaning to voting questions. Respondents who select ‘don’t know’ are not included in the results. The two-party preferred estimate is calculated by distributing the votes of the other parties according to their preferences at the 2013 election.

The Turnbull doom loop in action. He’s popular for being reasoned and centrist so the more he tacks into loon pond fear tactics the less popular he is, requiring even more lunacy.

He’s a goner.
