I put it more down to relief from ScoMo but if the government does get energy right this will stick:
Anthony Albanese has recorded the highest satisfaction rating for an incoming prime minister, delivering the Labor leader a commanding electoral footing on the back of a surge in popular support for the new government since the election.
An exclusive Newspoll conducted for The Australian, the first since the May 21 election, shows the Prime Minister’s satisfaction ratings at 61 per cent.

This is the strongest satisfaction rating, in a first post-election poll, since this question was first measured in 1985 during the Hawke government.
While former Labor prime minister Kevin Rudd’s net approval ratings were higher on coming into office, his satisfaction rating in the first post-election poll was lower at 59 per cent.
Scott Morrison recorded a satisfaction rating of 51 per cent following the 2019 election, while John Howard and Bob Hawke both recorded satisfaction levels in the high 50s.
Labor’s primary vote has also lifted almost five points on its election result of 32.6 per cent to 37 per cent, indicating a strong stamp of approval from voters on the performance of the government in its first two months in office.
