Malcolm Turnbull is facing a 10 per cent swing against him in his Sydney seat of Wentworth, according to polling that shows more than half his local electors think less of him since he became Prime Minister.
The ReachTel poll conducted across the blue-ribbon Liberal electorate last week suggests Mr Turnbull’s first preference vote will be slashed from 63 per cent to 53 per cent.
Only 14.5 per cent of people say their opinion of him has improved. About 30 per cent say their opinion is unchanged.
Almost 35 per cent of Liberal voters have cooled on him, while almost 80 per cent of Labor voters and close to 90 per cent of Greens voters say their opinion of him has diminished.
More than 53 per cent of respondents say Mr Turnbull has failed to live up to their expectations. Men and the over-50s are the most likely to be disappointed with his performance.
