The late mail

It’s way past my bedtime, so readers will have to make what they will of the following last-minute poll results. Tomorrow I will reconsider my South Australian election guide assessments one last time, and most likely make a few adjustments in Labor’s favour.

Firstly, today’s Newspoll for South Australia:

Secondly, today’s Advertiser poll:

Thirdly, yesterday’s Newspoll for Tasmania:

Finally, yesterday’s Taspoll results from The Mercury.

  1. Here’s my equivalent of the intelligence summary tabled at Cole: Labor looking good in Bright, Mitchell and Newland; Hammond back to the Libs; Norwood a possible Liberal gain but Unley just probably a bridge too far for the ALP (how DO doctors’ wives vote in state polls?); Hartley, Light, Mawson, Morialta, Mt Gambier and Stuart the seats that will decide the size of Mike’s majority.

  2. Well, I live in Hartley, and I’ve just done my democratic duty.

    I voted 1st for Family Farce, basically because I always vote for a minor party, and the Christian fundamentalists have the excellent quality of upsetting the hardcore leftwingers. I wouldn’t dream of voting for them though if I thought they could possibly win. Voting Democrat as a protest vote doesn’t upset anyone anymore.

    I gave my first preference to the ALP’s Grace Portolesi, who has run a solid campaign in the electorate in the last six to nine months. She’s been pestering me a lot more then incombant Joe Scalzi who has barely made his voice heard prior to the election campaign. In any event, the Rann government has been a solid administration and deserves another term.

    In the upper house, I voted for Nick Xenephon, the anti-poker candidate and all round gadfly. I voted for him in 1997 without much hope that he would get up, but I have been delighted to see that he did, and he’s done well, and I hope he gets up for another term.
