Ex-Prime Minister Scott Morrison posted a selfie while mowing his lawn, before responding to social media users who commented on the photo.

The post was immediately met with comments from members of the public, with the former Liberal leader taking the time to reply.

“It must be hard to mow your own garden,” one woman commented.

“Not really, nice to be outside, chatting with people passing by, catching up with the neighbors,” Mr Morrison replied.

Another user commented, “Those electric mowers don’t do much.”

“That’s right, but it’s easy and our lawn isn’t that big… Keep it tidy,” the ex-Prime Minister responded.

Many other people decided to give their support to Mr Morrison’s return to the father and MP for Cook in the suburbs.

“You look very relaxed, Mr. Morrison…All those years of worrying and worrying about our beloved country…enjoy,”

A second person commented, ‘This is why I love Australia. A head of state can walk away from a high office and live the life of an everyday Australian, and that’s perfectly normal. Best country in the world.’

“Nice to see you… Too bad you’re not a PM anymore, but so glad you’re spending time with your family,” added a third.

To date, Morrison has abstained from commenting on the politics of the time, unlike fellow former Prime Ministers Kevin Rudd and Malcolm Turnbull, and has remained largely silent since he was succeeded by Anthony Albanese.

After losing to the coalition in the recent election, a survey found Scott Morrison and former Nationals leader Barnaby Joyce to be the most unpopular party leaders since the Australian Election Study began in 1987.

The finding came after a survey of 3,500 voters was conducted by the Australian National University and researchers from the Comparative Study of Electoral Systems.

It was presented Friday by Professor Ian McAllister at a conference on the 2022 elections.

The survey also found that voters who supported teal independents were mostly former supporters of Labor and the Greens, not the Coalition.

According to the ANU survey, voters rated Morrison at an average of 3.6 on a 10-point popularity scale, compared to 5.1 after the 2019 election.

Meanwhile, in May 2022, Mr Joyce only got 3 out of 10.

Both coalition leaders scored slightly higher among their own voters – 6.8 for Mr Morrison and 5 for Mr Joyce.

Morrison’s score of 3.6 makes him the most unpopular Liberal leader since the inception of the AES.

This is followed by Andrew Peacock in 1990 with 3.9 and Tony Abbott in 2014 with 4.3.

Joyce was the lowest of all leaders at the time, but the Nationals leaders in 1987 and 1990 scored 3.6, which was on par with Mr Morrison.
