I am a firm believer of putting a good independent at #1, regardless of your political preferences

Independents who don’t have the backing of a party machine are reliant on the electoral funding they get from first-preference votes to fuel their campaign. We should encourage more good independent candidates (if only to hold the majors accountable) by directing our $1.50 their way wherever they are deserving.

By all means put your preferred major party at #2, but don’t funnel your money into their anonymous state coffers when it could be going directly to a committed local representative

What if your committee local independent is a white supremacist?

Going by the poll big footy is far more left then the average Australian. Either that or the polls are all wrong and labour is going to smash it in.

This board is generally for the more politically engaged so tends to skew left.

The right is more for the apathetic, disengaged, stupid and conspiracy theorist who can’t put together any coherent arguments.

1. Greens
2. Labor


Senate was a nightmare. Hadn't even made it halfway before I reached the Liberals.

Last spots reserved for Tudge and Sports Rorts Mckenzie

~80% ALP/Greens/Teal in the poll so far. This board is a parody at this point.
Did you vote?
This poll is for the BF Aussie politics board.
What's your problem?
Are you just stupid and/or LNP dependent?

This board is generally for the more politically engaged so tends to skew left.

The right is more for the apathetic, disengaged, stupid and conspiracy theorist who can’t put together any coherent arguments.
The board was more split until a huge chunk of our conservative friends had their minds broken by a black POTUS, had their position further solidified by the rise of the American right, decided to ram the place with alts, spout all sorts of nonsense and then took off in a sook when the mods decided the board was poison. Rather than do something constructive about it like, you know, create BigFreedom where they can rabbit on all they like, they just took the lazy option and infested another BF board*. The rest of us just looked around (digitally speaking), shrugged our shoulders and carried on as if it were no great loss (which it wasn't).

* Which, I must add, is a fantastic laugh when you need a hungover cure.

In a relatively marginal seat, Lindsay, and put ALP first, local member from LNP 3rd last, UAP 2nd last and ONP last. Highly doubt the ALP can win the seat given they only installed the candidate 2 weeks before Christmas, but it could come down to the pro-scomo v anti-scomo vote

Lindsay is basically the archetype of a Liberal party seat today IMO. Dutton becoming leader won't hurt them at all here. Was once upon a time very Labor.

its one thing that happened a lot this election, strategic voting

I have issues with a lot of his stuff, but even Friendly Jordies had a good piece on this (pointing out if your priority is removing the govt, supporting the likely leading opponent first is more important than supporting "your team")

will be interesting in the next election what degree of reset happens with these strategic voters

Grayndler so Albanese's seat. He was never going to lose.

Interesting how many Labor voters put Greens second or third behind an independent. TBH, I put the Greens last behind ON, UAP, and then Lib candidate. Greens are too extreme for my liking, and I still blame Bob Brown and the Greens for what become the last decade of politics when they rejected the CPRS. It appears many young voters still in nappies at the time have revived the greens vote in 2022, mainly based on LNP inaction here. Good in one respect, i.e, Libs out, bad on the other, i.e, Greens have considerable power again.

Will be interesting to see how much the Greens hold the Albanese Government hostage on climate legislation, considering Labor will need them and Pocock to get anything through the Senate.

Dude, let's not let the hyperbole run amok
Na I'm spot on there

No intelligent person is going to vote for a party that talks up war with China, for starters

I can't be bothered going into all the other pathetic disasters over 9 years, I'll leave that to ICAC

They're done, bye bye

Yes the right over the last 15 years has really gone to a bizarre scary level of extremism.

It’s got traction in the US, not so much here, but that won’t stop them from trying.

I thought that to vote for the libs you had to be either an idiot, or an a’hole, or both. I don’t think it’s simply a matter of weak intelligence.

To me the majority who vote for them are from two types of people - those voting in self-interest, and those who think they are.
Actually, that’s a pretty good summation. And kinder than my take.
Although if your self- interest means you tolerate all the appalling things the Morrison govt did, then I’m struggling to give you a passmark.
