ALP: massacre ahead...

Today's Newspoll gives the nation's view on the ALP and its interminable leadership crisis and it is a massive thumbs down.

In a result which would eclipse Gough Whitlam's massive defeat in 1975, Julia Gillard is taking her fractured and demoralised party to an annihilation that would see 30 of Labors 72 seats go to the popular Coalition. It is a maxim in politics that 'disunity is death' but even labor strategists are shocked by the severity of the hit they have taken. The Coalition have reached 50% of the primary vote while Labor has plunged four points to just 30% and a two-party preferred figure of 58/42. But what Labor fears even more is that the worst is yet to come.

The labor vote is on a solid trajectory down hill and the indications are that nobody is listening to Gillard or indeed, anyone else from labor. Kevin Rudd has shown himself to be a coward and consequently, voters who had a hope that he would rise and 'save' Labor have had their hopes dashed. Gillards actions in sacking and forcing pro-Rudd front benchers out just underlines her divisive rule. Suddenly, there is not just one Rudd on the back bench sniping and leaking information. There are ten of them. And to underline all that misery comes the news that Tonny Abbott is preferred Prime Minister by his biggest margin yet.

If there was ever any hope of a miracle win, it evaporated with this poll. A PM with the strategic and oratorical skills of a Paul Keating couldnt save this turkey. Gillard's political strategy skills are appalling and apart from when she is embarrassing herself by playing the gender card, her oratorical skills match Kath and Kim and even with the accent.

But the ALP are stuck with her now. There is literally no one else left to take on the job and possibly salvage some warm bodies from the wreckage. Like any one of a hundred dictators before her, she has 'executed' her opponents.

By Sept 14 we could be looking at a 40+ seat loss and an ALP doomed to the opposition benches for a decade or more.

Newspolls give a not necessarily reliable opinion from a miniscule.

I've thought for a long time that the issues were unable to be resolved, but from a morale point of view (not mine :) ), the appointment of Rudd would have breathed some life into the otherwise dead carcass and provided at least some hope for the federal ALP.

Gillard toughs it out to the detriment of the party.......

So LW's been doing some carpet bombing of his own. Would that I had that much spare time! Anyhow, yes, obviously thing are looking bad for later in the year for the ALP.

I wonder if this "spreading around" is unique to LW or has such behaviour been observed in other species?

On what? An entirely predictable and widely expected drop in the Newspoll, or some old blowhole spamming forums?

LW58, the tune you play is not music to everybody's ears and you may need to change key. Or you could try a bit of heavy metal "Abbott! Abbott! Abbott!."

carpet bombing... posting in TWO forums. Hardly a dresden-style bombing mission. Still smarting from the upcoming record loss for the Julia Gillard Ego Party formerly known as the ALP?

Yes, that was indeed my point. But you do apparently care enough to comment on the umm, "carpet bombing".

I enjoy watching the desperate labor supporters and their deflections. Im waiting for someone to come on and announce categorically that Newspoll is dead wrong and Gillard is running 50/50 with Abbott and she is preferred prime Minister and while you're at it, Whitlam is australia's favourite PM.

I know I shouldn't enjoy it, but it is fun watching them lose with such lack of honour.

They havent had any humour for 3 years since abbott defeated one PM and is now doing the same thing to Gillard except she is like the walking dead.

Kind of like watching Scott Morrison assert his latest brain fart about refugees is Coalition policy, despite no senior shadow minister or Rabbott support the idea.

Waiting for details. Hopefully won't be like the role modelling '10 election, come East Timorese, come Malaysian diarrhoea demonstrated by our ranga leader.
