The opposition leader is ascendant in the opinion polls, but many voters are still unsure about what he stands for in the absence of clear policy directions and seemingly contradictory positions

Both 'sides' are merely dragging us toward a global disaster, keeping the church supplicants comfortable until things finally fall-over, big time.
Neither, nor any of the current parties, and Indies, et al, are near to arguing for the policies the species will need for the next 100 years, and beyond.
The Greens, with various 'similar' political class protection ideals, are obviously the closest we now have to Rightminded policies.
But the lot of us, or around 75-to-95% of us in Australia, are light years away from braving the new world, voting down bullshit politics, including Shorten, and the ALP, and getting our facts and lives right, for inevitable hard times to come.
We may hope that next-gen voters, if voting still exists, will be tougher and less tolerant of soft headed delusional politrix?
As a CIA man, of some 37 years experience, Professor Michael Sheuer, in an interview to a US investigation, said, "We have to get rid of 'democracy'!" [paraphrased] among other astute and accurate things. One being, that "...we [the USA] should dump Israel immediately!"
But, the west, the world's upper class, is lost to it's own self-absorbed egomania, and because of our addictions, most of us are incapable of letting go the detritus of bad beliefs and cultures.
Shorten, like Abbott, will not go near correcting the many errors of our economics, politics and whiteguy culture.
Shorten is 'one of them!' A Jesuit.
