Seeing the election result could be a lot closer than many people predicted, expect the ABC's Antony Green to call the result around 10:00pm (AEST)/9:30pm (SA/NT)/8:00pm (WA)

One thing to watch out for is which newspapers across Australia has endorsed either Morrison or Albanese in their election day editorials.
Have you heard of a person named Robert Murdoch.

Newspapers and Media are the worst to watch out for. They are all own and run by Murdoch and he is a well known Liberal supporter. Don't trust these sources for getting correct information.

Frydenberg to survive by the skin of his teeth but Wilson to lose. Overall teal campaign will yield swings again the government but not many seats.

The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age has called for a change of government in their respective editorials. What makes it even more interesting is that both papers are run by Nine Media, which is headed up by Peter Costello, former Treasurer in the 1996-2007 Howard governments.

They may have, but you have to go hunting for it. 90% of articles from those papers are pro liberal.

Meanwhile, at the Murdochracy....

Looking at the Herald Sun, it seems to be more balanced in their federal election coverage in Victoria, with most articles being neutral than compared to The Australian which heavily favours the Coalition.

If Scott Morrison somehow wins the election on Saturday night, watch for the Labor Party to completely implode big time.

At least Anthony Albanese won't have to worry about a leadership spill within the Labor Party if he loses, because former PM Kevin Rudd changed the rules on leadership challenges in the Labor Party after the Rudd v Gillard disaster.

Changing leadership rules was a great move.

I think if LNP get in again, ALP will need to do a few things:

  • ramp up their funding
  • work more closely with greens
  • be more harder hitting towards LNP and fringe loonies.

I think ALP will win though, my prediction:

ALP: 82
LNP: 63
Other: 6

We are more of a labor state than any other in Australia. They need to be maybe slightly more subtle here.

What I can’t understand is the fact that ALP primary vote is 37% state and 32% federal (from 2019). Wtf would someone vote ALP state but not federal (unless going with the greens, can’t see why you’d vote ALP Vic then go LNP federal).

Losing to Independents : Wentworth, Kooyong, Goldstein , Nicholls
