Gender Split in Approval Ratings for Morrison and Albanese | Poll Position


This week’s Guardian Essential Report confirms a substantial gender split in attitudes towards the PM, with men at plus six approval and women at net 13-point disapproval. This is also translating into a 10-point difference in gender voting intention (male 42, female 32). Of even greater significance is that women are twice as likely to say they have yet to make up their mind who they will vote for, placing their issues and interests at the centre of the political contest to come.

Poll Position is the fortnightly show that gives you the scoop on what the press gallery and the public think about what’s happening in Canberra.
Unpack the big political issues and dive into the latest political polling trends with Katharine Murphy, Political Editor at Guardian Australia, and Pete Lewis, Executive Director at Essential Media, as they discuss the fortnightly Guardian Essential Poll with the Australia Institute host and deputy director Ebony Bennett. Only on Australia Institute TV.
