Rest assured that whoever you vote for and whoever gets into power will do absolutely nothing for you and the country.

For this reason I am voting Clive Palmer because damn it, if we're going to be useless we may as well have a good time whilst being useless.

Literally the only thing that matters long term is climate change so Greens for me.

Also as a Kooyong resident think Greens/Julian Burnside is the best chance we'll have to taking the seat from the Libs. Don't think Labors Jana Stewart will resonate with a lot of people in the area.

Already the news channels are full of politicians and political analysts waffling even more bulls**t than usual, can't wait until the whole thing is over.

Voters are broadly positive about the Morrison government’s budget according to the latest Guardian Essential poll, but 61% say it will make no difference to their vote and the government remains in the same position as it was a fortnight ago – trailing Labor, with an election in sight.

The latest survey of 1,069 voters has Labor ahead of the government 52% to 48% on the two-party preferred measure (the same as the last survey), with the Coalition’s primary vote on 38% (down a point), Labor’s on 35% (down a point), the Greens on 11% (up a point), One Nation on 5% (down two points) and others/independents on 10%.

One of the least interesting elections in recent memory. I just hope WA gets some decent Senators coz the House of Reps has about the same depth of talent as the AFLW.

Going by the 2016 results there are slim pickings in my seat. Liberal, Labor, a Greens bloke called Thor, Independent Dennis Jensen who is now with the Australian Conservatives, and the Australian Christians. Oh boy what a choice. Hopefully there are different choices this time around. The last three TPP results have been 25, 29 and 22 so my vote doesn't matter anyway, but Bomberboyokay will assure you where it's going.

Top issues for me are climate change, Newstart/Robodebt/our treatment of the unemployed, and economic management throughout a likely global downturn.

So I'd welcome a Labor government, but will put Greens 1st to keep their feet to the fire.

Pretty much my thoughts. I rate climate change extremely highly on my list of priorities, and its second only to the wealth gap. So I'll obviously be happier with a Labor government, but will vote Greens to give them all the help they need.

Also this is my first time voting after I missed a council election last year.
