Malcolm Turnbull is now the odds-on $1.50 with to lead the Coalition into the next federal election.

Punters have crunched Mr Turnbull’s odds in from $7 at Sportingbet since last week.

Tony Abbott’s odds of still being Prime Minister at the next election have drifted significantly from $1.10 to $2.75 at Sportingbet.

Julie Bishop is third favourite at $3.75.

“There has been overwhelming support for Mr Turnbull and he has attracted more than 80% of bets placed in this market since Monday,” said Sportingbet’s Andrew Brown.

“Mr Abbott has been friendless and we’ve barely seen a cent for him.”
