So we've got a new Prime Minister.

The media -- that includes us -- have been poring over every tiny detail, figuring out what it all means and how Australia's political landscape will change as we transition from a Tony Abbott government to a Malcolm Turnbull administration.

The politicians, journalists, talking heads, radio shock jocks and commentators have all had their say.

But what about those regular voters on the street?

We went out to gauge public reaction and found that many were optimistic about a Turnbull government, while few were too sad to watch Abbott vacate the PM's chair.
