All quiet on the Western Front.

We had a tax plan on Monday – I’m sure you all heard about it. There surely would have been tracking polls on Monday night/Tuesday, yet on Wednesday there were no Coalition advertisements to reinforce the message. Instead, we had an ad showing Howard’s response to an ad showing Rudd’s response to a Coalition ad.
Surely the tax plan didn’t go down so badly that it had no positives worth spending advertising money on?
It’s now Thursday and there is still no mention in the nations print and digital media of “Liberal Party sources” saying “internal polling” showed “a positive reaction” to the tax plan, and certainly nothing about it being “game on”. If this policy made a noticeable impact, there would have been Liberal Party sources lining up to brief the usual suspects in the media – unless of course the noticeable impact went in the wrong direction.
We’ll probably know how it played in tomorrows ACNielson.
