ANZ: Consumer Confidence Has Fully Recovered From Its Budget Crash | Business Insider
Why would Australian consumer confidence be up, but voters are apparently not returning to the Coalition?
I'm guessing the explanation is that consumers are satisfied Abbott won't get much of his budget through the Senate; and they still want to punish him for coming up with the budget in the first place.
If that's correct - it wouldn't inspire confidence in Abbott to run a double dissolution. Which is a pity, in a way.
