Poll Sum; 3rd Sept







Polls older than 14 days have been discarded

This past fortnight saw 11,041 people polled

Data as at Tuesday night, 2nd September.

Based on the AEC numbers there were 14722754 enrolled electors for the 2013 election so a fair estimate for the 2016 election is 15,000,000 electors.

The symbolic red and blue bar drawing a line where numbers swing around unpredictably.


Polls Included and Totals Polled.

One poll, Essential 19/08 was deleted

One poll,  Essential 02/09 was added

Any polls which come out after midnight Sydney/Melbourne time will be included in next week’s charts.



Percentages converted back to Raw Numbers

Simple maths convert the published % to raw numbers using the electors polled.

Liberal and National Party numbers are combined.


Note:- Newspoll lumps PUP voters with “Others”. I split them out at as near to 50-50 as I can with whole numbers. That seems to be how the numbers for other polls fall.

Two Party Preferred


Translating this into electoral numbers,

assuming 15 million electors

we have a National Two Party Preferred of

L-NP 7,135,500 Votes

ALP 7,864,500 Votes

Which leads to – – -



A difference of 729,00 voters.

A minuscule change this week.


The two biggest minor parties will have a major impact come election day.

Here is how they are going.


The Greens rose back to an exact 10%.

PUP drifted back down.





This is the “Off” week with only an Essential Poll of just over 1800 responders giving a change of just .01% . So the seats lost and gained remain the same.  Next week will show the effect of a warmongering Prime Minister, a compliant Leader of the Opposition and a PUP which has gutted the working man’s superannuation.




Over to you, the discerning reader.

From a Roman Wall #51

romanscribe“Salutem Secundus, greetings.” Nellus addressed the late arrival at her Forum Cafeterium. “You’ve been away for a few day.”

“Yes,” said that worthy. “I”ve been out of the City for a while. My brother Octavius was injured on his farm and I had to help out.”

“But he herds goats. Was it a fall down one of those steep hills on his farm?” Man about town, Libertinus sounded a little sceptical.

“No, he is as surefooted as his herd. He was attacked by a nanny goat while he was milking her.” explained Secundus.

“Hahahaha!” Everyone at the table burst out laughing.

“”Cold hands!” joked Zoophilus.

“No, of course not. He was halfway through milking the herd.” said Secundus. “It was just a single goat who seemed very skittish. She was unusually nervous.”

“It serves him right for milking her bare handed.” Verbo Ipsum broke in.  “When milking a nervous goat, you should always use kid gloves.”

tony abbott’s Dream

While reading through an old ‘Australian Women’s Weekly’, as is my wont on a Monday, I found a letter from a member of the public .

This was from page 18 of the Sept 2nd, 1944 issue

Remember this is near the end of the 2nd World War which saw women working in munitions and aircraft factories, running farms and serving in an assortment of military corps.

tony abbott and Kevin Andrews (Minister for Families) would be totally at home in this society.
