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.

poll01bNote:- Newspoll lumps PUP voters with “Others”. I split them out at as near to 20-80 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 7,097,100 Votes

ALP 7,902,900 Votes

Which leads to – – –

THE DIFFERENCE CHART

poll01d

A difference of

5.372% or

805,800 voters.

A miniscule swing this week. the L-NP picked up just under 10,000 votes Australia wide.

PRIMARY VOTE

One of the numbers the true wonks look at is the Primary vote given to the majors.

Once upon a time it was expected that the L-NP primary would be around 45% while the ALP could only win with a Primary beginning with a “4”.

MINOR PARTIES

The minor parties and the “others” will have a major impact come election day.

Here is how they are going.

poll01f

Whenever I see a poll it is my habit to add the ALP and Green votes together.

The Left remains the Left even though it is now in two parts.

At the moment the other Left Parties are lumped in “Others” so I cannot count them.

Anyway, here is what that addition of ALP + Greens looks like this week.

POINTS FOR DISCUSSION

1:

The numbers appear to be stalled at the moment. Until Murdoch-Mania strikes as we are led into an early election. Then the 5% differential will shrink.  I am tipping a very narrow ALP-Greens victory and a Left-wing Coalition as the outcome.

That could easily change to a disastrous result for Australia.

2:

The Greens have passed the 12% line and seem to be headed further up the polling charts yet may only gain two or three seats in the Lower House.  This makes a mockery of the Nationals Gerrymander.

I found an artist working on a wall in Fremantle back in April.

I finally got back there to see the final product.

UPDATE ON BORDER PROTECTION VESSELS

The information your Government will not make public as it is all

“On Water Matters”.

Back on 2nd June I reported that there were three Border Protection vessels in Flying Fish Cove.

Today I have received information that ACV Triton is in Darwin Harbour.

I was also told that the big blue boat, Ocean Shield, is in Flying Fish Cove.

C!1

C!2

Unlike last time, there is no hint of any refugee interceptions yet but maybe we should keep out ears open.

There do not appear to be any other Border Protection vessels at Christmas Island at the moment although there are road works happening at the moment on the way to the refueling area around the point making this area inaccessible..

There is also a report that an unidentified Law Enforcement vessel was at Cocos last week.

SECRET

To the best of my knowledge this information is not classified as “Top Secret”

YET

Who knows how long it will be before publication of shipping movements is made a crime and this type of blog post becomes the reason for knocks on the door.
