Goodbye Julia!

The people have spoken in the Roy Morgan Poll , the first poll since all the details of the carbon tax were released and the Coalition has increased its huge lead further to a record  two-party preferred 60.5% to Labor's 39.5% .Labor's options are all dreadful and there seems no way back other than toughing it out. Getting rid of Gillard will somewhat blunt the "liar" charge but the combined albatrosses of the carbon tax and perceived instability caused by leadership change will probably leave Labor in the same position. Either way Gillard goes now or at the first electoral opportunity which could happen early with the possibility of a by-election  or one of the independents growing some cojones and voting with the opposition.





L-NP (60.5%) RECORD LEAD OVER ALP (39.5%). FIRST POLL AFTER
PRIME MINISTER GILLARD ANNOUNCES DETAILS OF CARBON TAX
In the first Australia-wide voting intention poll conducted since Prime Minister Julia Gillard announced the details of the Carbon Tax the latest telephone Morgan Poll conducted over the last two nights, July 13/14, 2011 shows the L-NP 60.5% with a record winning lead over the ALP 39.5% - the worst Two-Party preferred voting result for Labor since the first Roy Morgan Gallup Poll conducted in May 1942.

The L-NP primary vote is 52.5%, nearly double the ALP 27.5%. Support for the minor parties shows the Greens 10.5% and Others/ Independents 9.5%.
If a Federal election were held today the L-NP would win in a landslide according to today’s Morgan Poll.
