SLIDIN' SIMON continues his graceful exit:

Simon Crean faces a caucus showdown during next month's budget session of parliament as public support nosedives for his leadership and the Labor Party.

The Australian has learned that internal ALP polling reveals the party is in dire shape and would lose a string of marginal seats in NSW, Victoria and Queensland.

"We are headed for a massive defeat," said one senior Labor figure who has been privy to the secret polling.

Some secret.
