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