I wonder if the state government will take notice and adapt or if they will just walk to the slaughter
I know life-long rusted on ALP voters and unionists who for the first time voted for the Coalition.Also some life-long Liberal voters turned away from them this time.
I would it wasn't anti-LNP that got Tony Abbott out, but rather it was a very much anti-Tony Abbott. The IND is a conservative and already said she will support the govt if need be. Watch next time as she very much gets dumped for a fresh LNP candidate, like Dr Phelps may find out.I know life-long rusted on ALP voters and unionists who for the first time voted for the Coalition.Also some life-long Liberal voters turned away from them this time.
Mayo, once a blue ribbon seat, saw a swing away from the Liberals towards Rebekha Sharkie in the third consecutive election (2016 general election, 2018 by-election, 2019 general election). It was clear very early on in counting that Princess Georgina had been firmly told to crawl back under the rock she came from, and after two defeats in a row it would be unlikely that she'll be back again.
The really interesting one is the decisive victory of Zali Steggall over Tony Abbott, where the Liberal smear campaign clearly failed to win back the many long term Liberal voters who sided with Steggall. If she performs well as a local MP sitting close to the centre but leaning slightly towards the Coalition, she will have a good chance of cementing a reputation as a good local representative who deserves to be returned next time.
My question - how are the polls so wrong?1) There method of surveying is out date
My conspiracy question - was NewsPoll used to suggest labour were stronger than reality and sway voters to vote Liberal?
Re Vic budget, here is hoping for some clarity around the Freight Passenger Separation Project.
