A Rudd-slide in the wrong direction

Polling data collected exclusively for Business Spectator shows which streets and issues will decide the election... and the results to date are tighter for Kevin Rudd than was thought.

Things look more grim in the Rudd bunker by the day. Not only have the polls slipped, but Labor is millions of dollars behind the Coalition in campaign funds due to the donation drought that set in under Julia Gillard’s reign.

On top of that, there seems little need for the Labor side of politics to leak against its leader in the way he is believed to have done against Julia Gillard – left-leaning voices are happy to shout his list of failings from the rooftops.
