Hey Kids, I’d nearly forgotten, but it’s an Essential polling Tuesday! essentialvision.com.au

Let’s see what we can find. As usual, this polling was done Wed–Sun and the margin of error on top-line figures is around ±3 percentage points. Here we go...
Performance of Scott Morrison. essentialvision.com.au/performance-of…

“The Prime Minister’s approval rating has dropped to 48%, the lowest of the last 12 months (54% last month), with disapproval at 42% (37% in October).” Image
Performance of Anthony Albanese. essentialvision.com.au/performance-of…

No real change here, bu the “unsure” figure is still quite high at 25%. Image
Preferred Prime Minister. essentialvision.com.au/preferred-prim…

No change. Image
Views towards re-electing the federal Coalition government. essentialvision.com.au/views-towards-…

“45% of Australians think it’s time to change federal governments, while 34% think the Coalition deserves to be re-elected.” Image
Party trust to handle issues. essentialvision.com.au/party-trust-to…

“In the time since the fall-out from the government’s AUKUS submarine announcement and Morrison’s COP26 performance, fewer people trust the Liberal party to maintain international relations and handle national security.” Image
Importance of Australia’s international reputation, first in an interesting series of questions here. essentialvision.com.au/importance-of-… Image
“Australia’s international reputation is seen to be of great value, with 54% saying it is very important to maintain a good reputation among international neighbours and trading partners and a further 39% saying it is fairly important,“ or 93% saying it’s some sort of important.
Scott Morrison’s impact on Australia’s international reputation. essentialvision.com.au/scott-morrison…

“48% of people rate the federal government’s response to the Covid-19 outbreak as quite good or very good,” much the same as recent months. ImageImage
State government response to Covid-19. essentialvision.com.au/state-governme…

“Rating of Victoria’s state government increased this week, from 43% a fortnight ago to 56% – equivalent to the positive rating in NSW (57% positive rating).” Image

And now onto climate. Impact of government’s net zero emissions 2050 target. essentialvision.com.au/impact-of-gove… Image
Understanding of government’s net zero emissions 2050 target. essentialvision.com.au/understanding-…

“Just one-in-five people think the government’s plan to achieve its emission targets are clear and provide a credible plan (21%).” Image
“The majority think the plan to achieve net zero emissions by 2050 is not credible. 36% say while they understand the target, the plan is not credible and a further 22% think the target is unclear and the plan not credible.”
Increasing emissions target ambitions. essentialvision.com.au/increasing-emi…

“43% of people want to see a more ambitious target set for 2030 in order to achieve the net zero emission target in 2050.” Image
Outcomes of COP26 – Global and local impact. essentialvision.com.au/outcomes-of-co…

“Around half of people are not confident that the COP26 summit will result in meaningful change – either globally or locally (both 52%).” ImageImage
Attitudes to climate change and COP26. essentialvision.com.au/attitudes-to-c…

Lots of detail to consider here! ImageImageImageImage

Sat plan: The usual slow start with a few chores; podcast post-production; fetch some wine from the village (when it’s not raining); and this evening, a chat with wine. Anyway the podcast post-production is the main thing.
Right, time to attempt walking to the village and back while the Rain Parrot tells me I have a clear hour and a bit.
Here we go... Image

It's a moist and potentially noisy day for weather in the Blue Mountains.

“Severe Thunderstorm Warning for DAMAGING WINDS, LARGE HAILSTONES and HEAVY RAINFALL for people in parts of Central Tablelands, North West Slopes and Plains, Central West Slopes and Plains and Upper Western Forecast Districts.” bom.gov.au/products/IDN21…
There is a thunderstorm coming in from the west right now but as usual it's passing south of here.

Sat plan: Slow start, because Saturday; a few household chores; podcast post-production, so you can listen to the lovely @markhumphries with your ears tonight; quiet evening.
The podcast editing is going quite well, albeit slowly because I’m faffing around and chasing birds out of the house. Meanwhile, @markhumphries, here is that radio documentary we discussed.

“Searching for Trough Man” (2017) abc.net.au/radionational/…
@markhumphries And to everyone else, in case I don’t finish in time, please read the attached tweet and do the needful.

Last night I dreamed that I was untangling the telephone cables in @GreenJ’s radio studio, which was equipped with an ancient Telecom Commander system like this one from Museums Victoria.
While doing so, someone made a call on speakerphone to a number in Port Hughes in South Australia, where two young children answered the phone. We didn’t talk to them, but they didn’t hang up, so we just had them there on speaker in the background for ages.
Mr Green didn’t actually feature in the dream in terms of plot, but somehow we just knew they were his studio phones. A technician and I discussed how modern radio studios were all digital and had much better phones.

Starting momentarily is a separate event, a Digital Rights Watch and Twitter panel, “Online Anonymity and Pseudonymity: Why it Matters”. This is for us alleged journalists so I may well be reporting on this. I will tweet little bits on this thread. Image
It’s bouncing off this paper, “PROTECTING THE
OPEN INTERNET: Regulatory principles for policy makers” cdn.cms-twdigitalassets.com/content/dam/ab… (PDF)
Kara Hinesley is introducing this by saying, as I suspected, that this session was prompted by recent news in Australia about the government’s plan to ID social media users. Image
