Abbott rules out run for top job

TONY Abbott has ruled out a tilt at the prime ministership despite a poll showing Labor ahead of the Coalition 52-48%. Quizzed on radio station 3AW about the Newspoll result, Mr Abbott declared his prime ministerial ambitions were "dead, buried and cremated”.

While Malcolm Turnbull (pictured) remained the preferred PM ahead of Bill Shorten, 44-33%, fewer than a third of voters were satisfied with his performance and more than half were dissatisfied.

Labor MP Brendan O'Connor said the poll reflected the "dithering, division and dysfunction of the government”.
