Labor expects poll hit


 June 28, 2009 10:14pm

PRIME Minister Kevin Rudd expects Labor will take a hit in the opinion polls because of the OzCar affair.

Appearing on Network Ten's Rove, Mr Rudd explained that some of the mud thrown by the coalition during the past week would stick - even though the email at the centre of its claims was a fake.

"'(They basically said) I'd been corrupt, I'd tried to make things easier for this guy to get access to a government finance program ... and he based it all on this email which was a complete forgery,'' he said.

"You know what happens when people throw mud, some of it sticks.

"I'm sure in the opinion polls we will see some damage.''

The coalition had accused Mr Rudd of trying to use his influence to help Queensland car dealer John Grant, who gave the prime minister a ute in 2007.

Police have confirmed the email crucial to the coalition's claims is a fake.

On Sunday night, Mr Rudd made his second appearance on the popular variety program - his first as prime minister.

His first appearance was during the federal election campaign in 2007.
