Our gaff prone PM will go to an election on 21 August 2010, and so will we, traipsing out in the midst of winter to tick a box.
In less than three weeks Gillard has already lost her bounce, with polls showing that the electorate is still holding out against the ALP.
Maybe it's time that pollsters stopped offering loaded questions, or stopped believing the answers.
Clearly, Rudd was not the problem and Gillard has not proven to be the solution.
Could it be it was the policies all along, the waste, the failures, the evasion from responsibility? (Well, all except Garrett - boy did he get screwed.)
Gillard by a nose? Probably.
