Fairfax/Ipsos poll: Coalition caught in cycle of vengeance

Among the people who say they’re Coalition voters, support for Turnbull is emphatic at 74 per cent. “It’s interesting,” says the pollster, Jess Elgood, “Because it’s so overwhelming.”

In a democracy, you might think that the people’s wishes would weigh heavily on the elected representatives. But since 2010, the elected representatives have been much more interested in indulging their own ambitions and petty preoccupations.

“Talk of changing Malcolm Turnbull is in the Canberra bubble,” says Elgood. Which is exactly where a good many of his MPs and senators dwell.
