  • Support for Scott Morrison as PM has risen since before the Federal Election, from 39% to 43% while Albanese has slightly lower support than Bill Shorten did before the Federal Election (25% to 32%).
  • However, it may be too soon to judge Albanese’s performance, as the number who replied ‘Don’t know’ has also crept up (from 28% to 32%).
  • Morrison received strong support (80%) from Coalition voters, while Labor voters were less sure of Albanese as PM (with 34% selecting ‘Don’t know’, double the number compared to Coalition voters – 17%). 40% of Other voters did not know who they would prefer.
