‘Not like Tony Abbott’: what kind of PM would Anthony Albanese be? | Anthony Albanese | The Guardian

With Covid dominating the political agenda, Anthony Albanese has sought to make Scott Morrison the story

Albanese’s problem isn’t disapproval, it’s voters continuing to sit on the fence when changing a government requires an active choice. Change requires engagement, and around a quarter of the Guardian Essential sample can’t say whether they approve or disapprove of Albanese. This is a high number, and it’s been that way for many months. This fortnight’s Guardian Essential data neatly lays out a story of two leaders: Morrison’s approval has slipped, and his negatives are on the rise. That’s what happens when you stay in politics for a long time. Voters learn to decode your habits, and mark you down when strategy too often substitutes for sincerity. But Albanese hasn’t yet cut through sufficiently to convince voters he’s the change the country needs.
