Best Australian PMs since 1972

A poll in the Australian about whom Australians think has been the best Prime Minister since 1972. The results are:

  1. John Howard 34%
  2. Bob Hawke 13%
  3. Gough Whitlam 10%
  4. Paul Keating 6%
  5. Kevin Rudd 6%
  6. Julia Gillard 5%
  7. Malcolm Fraser 3%
  8. Malcolm Turnbull 3%
  9. Tony Abbott 2%

I’d agree with Howard and Hawke as the two two. I’d put Keating third. My list would be:

  1. John Howard
  2. Bob Hawke
  3. Paul Keating
  4. Julia Gillard
  5. Tony Abbott
  6. Gough Whitlam
  7. Malcolm Turnbull Fraser
  8. Kevin Rudd
