Jacinda Ardern voted Australia's most trusted politician

Thu May 16, 2019 12:29 pm

In a poll by Millward Brown, 1400 Australians were asked to score 12 politicians across six areas: relevance, integrity, shared values, commitment, affinity and follow-through.

The clear winner of the 'Believability Index' was New Zealand's Ardern, who emerged with a score of 77/100 - streets ahead of second-place getter Penny Wong, who is Labor's leader of the Senate.

Former deputy Liberal leader Julie Bishop and Labor deputy leader Tanya Plibersek came in third and fourth respectively, meaning the most trustworthy politicians in Australia are all women.

The bottom five included Australia's former Prime Minister Tony Abbott and current Prime Minister Scott Morrison, 7 News reports.Participants were also asked to name their preferred Prime Minister, although Ardern was not included as an option given she's busy running her own country. That title went to Bishop, who resigned from cabinet last year after a failed bid for the leadership.

Nice to see that empathy and honesty are still valued. Shame for Australia that they don't have the chance to elect her.

The election is tomorrow night - the polls are very close.

The advertising blackout came into force at Midnight last night, but this doesn't apply to online advertising.

This means you can't even play a YouTube video without it being ruined by political advertising.....

And now Hawkie's gone and shuffled off the mortal coil less than 2 days out to add to the mix....

Do you think it will have much of an effect? He's certainly well respected which I guess means that there will be mean lots of positive coverage.

The networks have already had their specials on him, with more to come tomorrow no doubt. Labor might get some sympathy votes, especially from those who remember the Hawke years.

Though the last day of campaigning will be somewhat subdued as a mark of respect.
