VOTE LEAVES HOME
Kim Beazley’s polling has crashed to its worst level in his seven years as Opposition Leader and Labor’s gains have been wiped out by weeks of internal bloodletting …
Voter support for Mr Beazley as preferred prime minister dropped nine points to just 18 per cent … federal Labor has lost its month-long two-party-preferred lead over the Coalition, with its support dropping back to what it was before the new industrial relations laws were passed last year and the breaking of the AWB wheat scandal.
Mr Howard shot farther ahead of Mr Beazley as the preferred prime minister, with an increase in support from 53 to 61 per cent, while the Labor leader’s support fell nine points.
Just after the tenth anniversary of his election as Prime Minister, voters now prefer Mr Howard to Mr Beazley in that role by a ratio of three to one.
