THIS TWO WEEK PERIOD
A total of 11,292 voters were polled. Which is around 1 voter in 1330.
Make of that what you will.
Because the Essential Poll of 10/06 was a day late, it still fits into the 14 day period so no polls were deleted this week.
One poll, Essential 23/06 was added.

THE DIFFERENCE CHART
A difference of
In seven days, there has been an apparent small swing right.
40,000 voters have changed their minds this week.
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”.
The minor parties and the “others” will have a major impact come election day.
Here is how they are going.
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
The swing this week with only Essential being released, is illusionary. It will be interesting next week with more polls available.
Newspoll has released a poll taken in Victoria which shows a Victorian Two Party Preferred of 58% ALP, 42% L-NP.
