Rudd & Turnbull more popular?
They may be out of favour with their own parties, but voters would rather the former Prime Minister or Opposition Leader in charge of the country.
Bickering over the AWU scandal has done little to help both the Prime Minister and Opposition Leader's popularity - with voters preferring their predecessors.
A galaxy poll has former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd ahead as preffered PM at 27%, trailed by former Opposition Leader Malcolm Turnbull on 23%.
There's then a big gap to current PM Julia Gillard at 18%, with Opposition Leader Tony Abbott in last place at 17%.
Stuart Bocking points out however, its another poll of wishful thinking.

But Julia Gillard is earning the praise of asylum seekers in Indonesia, happy at the Government's plan to release people into the community. 2UE Newsroom's Gemma Gunning reveals the details.
Meantime, public servants have been told to find savings ahead of Christmas, as the Federal Government looks at more ways to deliver on its promised budget surplus.
The expenditure review commitee is said to be looking at a long list of urgent proposals, in a bid to reach the $1.1-billion surplus.
The measures, which could form a mini-budget, are expected to be unveiled early in the new year.
The Galaxy Poll released today has found only one in five voters believe Julia Gillard has been completely open and honest over her role in the Australian Workers Union scandal in the early 1990s.
Australians spend more than half a billion dollars on bottled water each year, despite perfectly good water running from our taps. Clinton Maynard questions why people like bottled water over quality tap water.
I thought it was a part of normal democracy that the most popular person is the PM.

I wouldn't vote for Turnbull in a fit! He isn't Liberal. He's more Labor.David T. Tuesday 4 December, 2012 - 6:20 PM
Look I have studied true leaders for years and damned years and I can unreservedly assure every one of my fellow Australians that neither Kevin Rudd nor Malcolm Turnbull do not have the necessary prerequisits, nor the interpersonal skills, the wherewithal, the staying power nor the professionality to be Prime Ministerial material. Like Gillard, they are simply poor lame damned incapable ducks. I rest my case.Justin J James Monday 3 December, 2012 - 9:24 PM
Gillard won't be concerned about her lack of popularity with Australians... she's been given hero status by the "Asylum Seekers" (read illegal immigrants) waiting in Indonesia, since her policy that they are now going to be settled in Australia, given Centrelink benefits and help with accommodation was announced. One 17 year old in Indonesia who was awaiting his application to be processed has announced he will now pay a "people smuggler" to get him here, so he can take advantage of our generosity. It's nice to be loved, isn't it Julia??David T. Monday 3 December, 2012 - 2:48 PM
When you ask Labor voters who they want as the opposition leader of cause they will say Turnbull because he is more Labor than Liberal. Its all in the way they ask the question. They only like Rudd because Gillard is now a liability and will succeed in Labor's downfall. There is no contest between Abbott and Turnbull, Abbott has brought the Liberals back out of the cold whereas Turnbull rides on the back of others work.Peter Monday 3 December, 2012 - 10:31 AM
I'm guessing with some people Mickey Mouse and Goofy would be more popular to, these polls mean bugger all. Why do they even bring up the question?Douglas Monday 3 December, 2012 - 10:12 AM
