Bad polls don't deter the PM
Prime Minister Julia Gillard maintains she'll lead Labor to the next federal election despite another two bad opinion polls.
The Nielsen survey shows the Government has marginally improved its primary vote but after preferences the Coalition would win in a landslide.
A separate Galaxy Poll shows similar results.
Ms Gillard says she doesn't take notice of the polls, arguing Labor is making the hard decisions in the nation's interest.
Meanwhile, the Prime Minister is heading back to Canberra on Monday afternoon to address her most senior colleagues following a damaging media leak.
It's been revealed Cabinet discussed re-opening the Nauru detention facility to try to neutralise the asylum seeker issue.
The leaked suggestion, believed to have been put forward by members of Labor's right faction, was flatly rejected.
Speaking from Brisbane where she's announced flood reconstruction funding the Prime Minister told the ABC Cabinet discussions should be respected.
PLAY: Shepparton mayor on the Gillard Government making no contact with his Shire over migration policy and Neil Mitchell comparing the Gillard Government to the last days of the Kirner state government.
REPLAY: The Greens are proposing a compromise to break the pokie reform deadlock threatening to bring down the Gillard government. Green Senator Richard Di Natale suggests "a low intensity" approach which includes a $20 dollar limit per machine.

Garry,I don't get your point, how did that happen?And that's why we have unions,it was your employer that was ripping you off not Howard or Costello>!!Steve Tuesday 18 October, 2011 - 2:05 PM
Garry, take us through how you lost 40K then got back 42K when Labor came back in. You keep banging on about it - how about sharing it with us. Will be fascinating reading.JR Tuesday 18 October, 2011 - 11:40 AM
If the Labor party now see Nauru as an option, why don't they just run with it? The longer they stuff around, the more boats that arrive, another three so far this week. They must act now. Gillard needs to but out and let Bowen get on with it.Ross Tuesday 18 October, 2011 - 10:47 AM
Hey Max, I'm with you. Get rid of any polly not born in this country,and I'll bet the boat people problem would be fixed before lunch. Too many 'un-Australian' people in public positions at the moment.Greg Tuesday 18 October, 2011 - 10:38 AM
Yes I have often wondered the same thing Max, why can you become P.M. if you are an ethnic or migrant or whatever they call themselves?Pru Tuesday 18 October, 2011 - 8:34 AM
The scandalous rotten mess she has made is patently there for all to see. A rank incompetent and proven failure in every way. Time to go Madame! But allow us to do it at the ballot box asap!Justin Tuesday 18 October, 2011 - 7:41 AM
