Essential: voters still want Rudd v Turnbull, no benefit from mining

Support for Malcolm Turnbull has significantly increased among voters, and he has increased his lead over Tony Abbott as the preferred Liberal leader, today's Essential Report finds. And despite losing a leadership ballot to Julia Gillard, Kevin Rudd remains easily the most popular figure to lead Labor.

    Abbott’s pathetic performance of 7.30 tonight should scare the bejasus out of anyone considering him for PM. Not only could he barely string words together, his flailing about when, lightly, queried of his, y’no, akshal policies was an embarassment to the species HOMO.
    Krudd should lead the tories and Turnbull Labor – then we might have some real contest of ideas.

    Again, non-ESSENTIAL information. This so called “research” only re-enforces self-serving media and wider vested interest agendas, keeping the general public in a constant state of “befuddlement”.
