I just can't believe opinion polls showing three percentage point changes in a fortnight. Things just don't happen that quickly. I'll be treating the latest Newspoll putting things at 50-50 with disdain.
Would you want to back Bill Shorten at even money to become Prime Minister after the next election? I certainly wouldn't.
One thing I do believe is that the Newspoll will put an end to any chattering within the parliamentary Labor Party that Bill Shorten should be replaced as leader before the poll. And for the Coalition that has to be good news.
