Howard has narrowed the gap on Preferred PM! Noes!
Re: Nth Sydney….surely the GETUP campaign against Hockey would also help Mike Bailey, just as the ‘Not Happy John’ campaign was effective in reducing Howard’s margin in Bennelong last election?
Newspoll 54-46 ALP
Primary Labor 46 down 2, Liberal up 1
Bob Brown on LL. Didn’t waste a second. Masterly!!!!!
ShowsOn, he doesn’t give a specific prediction but he does say, “Barring something amazing in this last week, or a marginal seats miracle, Labor will win, and win comfortably.” Hope this helps 🙂
Is that the fat lady I hear singing
North Sydney is my dream result. A bit of money has gone on this one recently. I got $7 on Bailey, now it’s in to around $4.
The Armenians in the US seem to be heavily Republican. As in Australia, they tend to vote as a bloc and are *very* politically organized. I wonder why…
On another subject, does anyone know where I could find a live internet feed of the election?
Armenians are the archetypal small bizos, just behind the Jews. Armenians have also held a prominent place in Singapore and HK, punching above their weight.
