McGowan still leads the way among a pack of pollies

June 12, 2020


‘There’s nothing unlawful about going for a run and eating a kebab…’

…at least not according to WA’s Premier Mark McGowan.

And it would seem most of us agree with him – our latest People’s Voice survey revealed his approval rating is still through the roof and the best among a handful of his peers both in WA and nationally.

Our survey of more than 800 West Aussies this week found that 87% are satisfied with this performance as Premier, with a staggering 63% saying they’re very satisfied! His current approval rating is similar to the 90% who said they were satisfied with his performance back in April.


These are big numbers for McGowan, and nine months out from the next state election in WA it feels like another term is a sure thing at this stage.

Particularly when you see how he stacks up against a pack of other big names in state and national politics. McGowan has by far the highest approval rating, with WA Opposition Leader Liza Harvey struggling with just 19% satisfied with her performance.

Scott Morrison is doing relatively well as our PM, but it’s clear the Opposition Leaders are struggling to get traction in these times of crisis. Check out the full rankings below.


The People’s Voice was designed to help anyone – businesses and individuals – ask questions and understand the thoughts and feelings of West Australians.

People’s Voice gives you the chance to ask both current and potential customers what their attitudes and opinions are towards your brand or products and have the ability track these as we navigate through these unprecedented changes in our world.
