Anthony Albanese Approval Rating Polls: Key Insights

  • In the Morning Consult poll, Albanese trended higher over the last 6 months beginning at 42% and rising now to 59%. His current net approval rating is 30%. Scott Morrison’s Approval rating on the other hand remained below 50% and he closed his tenure at (-17%).
  • As a consequence, Labor (ALP) has gained 4.1% over the 2022 election while the Coalition is down -1.7%
  • Labor is also leading the Coalition at 53%-45% on the TPP vote, a gain of 1% for ALP over the last 6 months. However, the Coalition is down 2% since the election.
  • The lower TPP gain for the ALP suggests that most of Mr. Albanese and ALP gains are coming from left-of-center voters who are returning to the ALP (at least for the moment)
  • Separately, Newspoll has reported that Labor is making advances in both Queensland and NSW. In NSW, a Liberal stronghold, the Liberals lead 51-49 on the TPP vote, the lowest in years. In NSW, Labor now leads 55-45
  • Most of these leads may not hold in the long run but Mr. Albanese appears to be enjoying an extended dream run for now.

Anthony Albanese Approval Rating: Promises Implemented so far

1) National Anti-Corruption Commission Bill 2022

As promised by the Labor Party, the Albanese Government delivered its promise to legislate the country’s long-awaited National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC). As of the 29th of November 2022, the bill establishing the commission has passed through both the Australian House of Representatives, and the Senate. The commission is expected to be finalized by mid-2023. The committee will have independent powers to investigate serious or systemic corruption across the Commonwealth public sector by ministers, parliamentarians, and employees of all government entities. It will also ensure strong protection for whistleblowers.

2) Energy Price Relief Plan

The bill is expected to help ease the skyrocketing energy prices such that bills will rise by 13% rather than the expected 36% in 2023-24.

The legislation plans to:

  • Impose a Temporary cap on the price of gas for 12 months at $12 per gigajoule on new wholesale gas sales by east coast producers subject to consultation.
  • Temporary cap on the price of coal: The NSW and Queensland Governments are setting ceilings for the price of coal used for electricity generation to $125 a tonne.
  • Provide Targeted Bill Assistance: The Government will partner with the states and territories to deliver targeted and temporary relief on power bills to eligible Australian households and small businesses. An Energy Bill Relief Fund with up to $1.5 billion will be established to deliver relief directly to electricity bills
  • Investment in Cleaner, Cheaper, Reliable Energy for the Future: Around $10 billion will be invested under the scheme in private and public sector investment to ensure long-term affordability and accessibility of clean and cheap energy.

3) Fairwork Legislation Act 2022

The Fair Work Legislation Amendment (Secure Jobs, Better Pay) Bill 2022 aims to make numerous changes to industrial relations legislation.

  • Promote flexible working arrangements (FWAs).
  • Promote gender equity and strengthen the legal framework in respect of sexual harassment and anti-discrimination protections.
  • Promote wage growth through bargaining, approval, and termination processes.
  • Improve job security by prohibiting certain fixed-term contracts
  • Abolishes the Australian Building and Construction Commission (ABCC) and establish The National Construction Industry Forum which will provide advice to the government on the building and construction industry.

4) Ozone Protection Act

The Ozone Protection and Synthetic Greenhouse Gas Management Reform (Closing the Hole in the Ozone Layer) Bill 2022 seeks to modernize and streamline Australia’s laws to manage ozone-depleting substances and synthetic greenhouse gases. Australia’s ozone legislation controls the import and use of ozone-depleting substances and synthetic greenhouse gases which are commonly used in refrigerators, ACs, fire extinguishers, aerosols, etc.

The control and phase-out of ozone gases stem from the highly successful Montreal Protocol which was ratified by Australia in 1989. The Australian Government is closely working with industries to phase down the use of HFCs by 85% between 2018-2036. The amendments set out in the Bill are expected to improve the management program’s efficiency.
