Turnbull leads Shorten in trustworthiness ratings

MALCOLM Turnbull and Bill Shorten both say the election is about answering the question "who do you trust?", and Vote Compass data suggests Mr Turnbull has the advantage over his opponent.

Vote Compass asked respondents to rate the leaders of the Coalition, Labor and the Greens for trustworthiness and competence, giving each a score out of 10.

Mr Turnbull lead on both trust and competence, with an average rating across the two questions of 5, while Bill Shorten (4) ranked behind Greens leader Richard Di Natale (4.5).

All three leaders scored higher than their counterparts from the last federal election in 2013: Tony Abbott, Kevin Rudd and Christine Milne.

There was a much larger gap between Mr Turnbull and Mr Shorten than there was between the major party leaders in 2013, when Mr Abbott and Mr Rudd's ratings were only split by 0.1.
