Australia's likely new PM not particularly liked

FILE - In this Wednesday, Sept. 4, 2013 file photo, Australian opposition leader Tony Abbott speaks to locals at the Sydney Markets in Sydney's Flemington. Abbott, the political pugilist who leads Australia’s opposition, was once dubbed “unelectable” by a former boss, but as the Sept. 7 elections near he seems certain to become prime minister. The 55-year-old conservative has never been very popular. His Liberal Party colleagues elected him their leader by just a single vote in 2009. “Polarizing” is an adjective often used to describe him.
