Hockey Beaten by Someone Else

Joe Hockey finds that populism isn’t popular:

VOTERS have rated Tony Abbott marginally better than Malcolm Turnbull to take the Coalition to the next election.

An Essential Media online survey of 1844 people taken last week found 23 per cent of voters backed Mr Abbott, while 22 per cent said Mr Turnbull would be a better person to take the Liberals to the next election.

Opposition treasury spokesman Joe Hockey (14 per cent) rated fifth behind “don’t know” (19 per cent) and “someone else” (15 per cent).
