Gillard has won 71 votes to 31. I think this is the highest margin in any contested leadership ballot for the ALP leadership.
Kevin Rudd will never be leader again, and I suspect never be a Minister again.
However I don’t think Gillard is entirely safe. If her poll ratings do not improve, then one or more other challengers will arise. Towards the end of this year is a key time for possible change.Tags: Australian Labor
