I’ve always wondered if the claim, often made by rightwingers in the ALP, that whoever is their standard bearer is just *more electable* has just become one of those supposedly self-evident nostrums that people repeat without even thinking about it.
It doesn’t appear to be the case in the contest between Bill Shorten and Anthony Albanese.
Roy Morgan found Albo leading Shorten among every category of voters – by age, residence, gender and voting intention.
See the results here.
