They believe a leadership challenge may be just a matter of time if Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull can not settle the climate dispute among his colleagues. The former prime minister will continue to destabilise until the crisis comes.

However, the Home Affairs Minister has continued to deny he would challenge for the leadership.

But Turnbull's explanation, which included a direct rebuke of Tony Abbott, sparked yet another confrontation with the former prime minister.

Mr Abbott can count on only a handful of supporters in the party room, but the chaos around the Government's energy policy is threatening to spill into a leadership challenge.

'I think Malcolm Turnbull is terminal and will be very surprised if he is still leader by the end of the year, ' another said. It would be electoral suicide to have him as leader'.

Mr Turnbull is expected to announce further changes to the plan later on Monday.

The prime minister said power companies would face default energy prices, as well as tough penalties for providers that failed to bring costs down.

"Emissions targets that made sense three years not make sense now", Mr Abbott said.

The results of the latest Ipsos poll are out of alignment with the two other major opinion polls, Guardian Essential and the Newspoll, which have Labor in front by a much narrower margin - but despite that inconsistency, the timing of the poor result will trigger a fresh round of jitters as government MPs return for the sitting week in Canberra.

The home affairs minister said his view remained the same as last Thursday, when he told the Sydney radio host Ray Hadley he would take up any disagreements he had with cabinet colleagues privately.

'I'm focused on getting energy prices down and I'll leave you to all of the speculation, ' he told ABC.

'In relation to media stories today, just to make it very clear, the Prime Minister has my support and I support the policies of the Government, ' he said on Twitter.

The new poll shows a majority, 54% of a sample of 1,200 voters, support the national energy guarantee (Neg), with 22% opposed and 24% not having a position. The objective is to do this while lowering carbon emissions. The target of 26 per cent by 2030 aligns with the global Paris pact on climate change.

The Liberal and Nationals MPs who are against NEG and appear willing to cross the floor include Tony Abbott, Andrew Gee, Andrew Hastie, Barnaby Joyce, Craig Kelly, Kevin Andrews, George Christensen as well as Keith Pitt.
