One month later

One month after my last post, and with emails starting to trickle in asking if I’m still in business, a quick update on my activities would seem to be in order. As you have probably guessed, I have spent much of this time working on my guide to the November 25 Victorian election, which will go live on November 1 regardless of what state it’s in. That will mark the beginning of the high-intensity Poll Bludger campaign coverage you have come to know and love. I will also be visiting my erstwhile home town of Melbourne from November 15 to view the latter stages of the campaign first hand.

  1. Comparing todays headlines in Melbourne is amusing:

    The Age “Libs face crushing loss at poll”

    HUN “BACKLASH – Bracks risks losing 16 seats”

    Everyone’s a loser baby, that’s the truth.

  2. We could start with a discussion of today’s opinion polls in the Age and the Hun, one showing a Labor landslide and one showing Labor losing 16 seats (according to the Hun). Who said opinion polling was an exact science?

  3. The difference between polls is bizarre; however, the ACNielsen is more in line with the $1.05 odds for a Labor win on the betting market, which is a certainty. Interestingly the Greens vote rises by 3% in the AgePoll while falling 1.5% in the Hun…. are the poll methods markedly diffferent?
