THE DIFFERENCE CHART
A difference of
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”.
That was back when the Greens were just beginning!
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.
POINTS FOR DISCUSSION
As we all reflect upon the first two years of the abbott disaster, it is interesting to look at how the voters have changed their thinking during that time using PollSum’s numbers..
I have deliberately set this chart up so it is easy to follow the slide of votes away from the Right to the Left.
“OTHERS”, of course indicate the fed-up-edness of the electorate.
Just eleven days to go until we find out just what the voters think in the electorate of Canning. Could it be that there will be a spill shortly after that?
All polling seems to indicate pre- election numbers of 51%L-NP and 49%ALP.
At the very least the indications are that there will be a larger than comfortable swing away from the abbott Government and an ALP win is not out of the question..
With the news the Senators Xenophon and Lambie may be joining forces it seems that we could have a proliferation of Personal Promotion Parties; PUP, KAT and XL. If they are polled separately I may combine them in a special line all to themselves. After all, we have no idea what they stand for other than as a way of getting their leaders re-elected.
