Today's latest episode in the News Ltd campaign against Julia Gillard hangs off the back of a Galaxy poll.
The poll pretty much finds that voters split along party lines on the great AWU non-scandal.
The poll finds that 60 per cent of voters think PM Gillard should make a full statement to Parliament.
This question, of course, is premised on the LNP / News Ltd idea that Gillard is hiding something. Something that hasn't been revealed after 17 years, several inquiries, a few recent marathon media conferences, 4 days of 'forensic' questioning by Julie Bishop in Parliament this week and a 15 minute speech by the PM and Abbott.
I wonder what background interviewees were given before they were asked that question.
I wonder also why questions weren't asked about the performance of Abbott, Bishop et al. Do voters, for instance, think the Opposition has wasted too much time on this stuff already and should focus instead on some policy issues?

UPDATE: William Bowe has a fuller, much more sophisticated treatment of the problems with the Galaxay questions here.
