Dumping Turnbull won’t fix the problem he created

Dumping Turnbull won’t fix the problem he created, by Peta Credlin.

Right now, the only conversation anyone is having in Canberra centres on the prime minister’s future: can he survive? If not him, who?…

Right now, things are very fluid. The prime minister remains in his job only because key senior conservatives have not shifted support. How long that continues is anyone’s guess but conversations are being had. …

Newspoll is stagnant because the base now has somewhere to go, and they’re going. …

Backbenchers have stopped campaigning because they don’t know how to defend the government’s poor standing, and there’s no real plan to fight back.

Ironically it’s the moderates Malcolm Turnbull needs to watch. They’ve been meeting recently and “what has he done for us lately” is a common refrain, with many feeling Julie Bishop has delivered more than Turnbull.
