  • Albanese faces a similar approval rate (35% to 38%) but lower disapproval (25% to 44%) than Bill Shorten received in May 2019.
  • However, the difference has mostly gone towards an increase in those selecting ‘Don’t know’ (39% to 18%), suggesting he hasn’t been Opposition Leader long enough for voters to decide.
  • More than a third of Labor, Coalition and Other voters were not sure if they approved or disapproved of his performance (the number reached 44% for Greens voters).
