Patterson: 56-44 in Eden-Monaro

A poll of 400 voters in Eden-Monaro, conducted by Patterson Market Research (of Westpoll fame) and published in the Canberra Times, shows Liberal member Gary Nairn (“I can’t particularly comment on whether those words were said or not because I wasn’t there, however clearly I would not agree with any comments that would compare the work of Australian soldiers with those in Nazi Germany”) to be headed for the drubbing he so richly deserves. Decorated war veteran Mike Kelly leads the gutless Nairn 56-44 on two-party preferred, and by 48 per cent to 41 per cent on the primary vote.
