Pollie Rater: How do your Federal politicians rate ahead of the May 21 election?

With less than a week to go before one of the country’s most important Federal elections in living memory, The West Australian’s Pollie Rater has provided a fascinating early insight into the minds of voters.

The never-before-seen widget allows users to rate Federal Cabinet ministers, opposition frontbenchers, WA MPs and star candidates — and compare their average rating with The West Australian’s expert assessment.

Initial results from the Pollie Rater have thrown up a few surprises, and show that Prime Minister Scott Morrison is rated ahead of Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese by the slimmest of margins.

Mr Morrison is currently sitting on an average voter rating of 5.3/10, compared to Mr Albanese on 5.2.

In a particularly unsurprising result, Clive Palmer is the lowest rated figure, coming in with an average voter rating of 2.3/10.

Curtin Independent candidate Kate Chaney is holding her own (5.2/10) against her sitting Liberal opponent Celia Hammond (5.1/10)

Feel like giving the politicians a rating this Federal election?

Our Pollie Rater lets you do just that.

Rate the politicians

Overall, Liberal party candidates have recorded a voter average of 5.04/10 while the ALP has notched up an overall average of 5.1/10.

The most popular pollie is Treasurer Josh Frydenberg with an average voter rating of 6.1/10, followed by Minister for Indigenous Australians Ken Wyatt on 5.9/10 and Labor frontbencher Tanya Plibersek on 5.7/10.

And there’s plenty of time left for voters to rate their pollies before the election on Saturday, May 21. Just head to the page via the link midway through this article.

By the end of the day on Saturday, we should know just how accurate our readers’ votes are!
