A Liberal bluewash across the Australian political landscape? No worries, according to most voters.

    I just cannot take ANY poll seriously after the SA election results. It seems you have all become mouthpieces for the conservative side of politics. Whatever happened to the ‘landslide’ victory for the LNP in SA? More wishful thinking? And please, I hope no one has the effrontery to talk about majority of votes/seats, and how the Libs wuz robbed! If so, may I refer you to the federal election in 1998 (the so-called GST election) where, not only was Howard ‘elected’ with around 48% of the vote, but he also claimed it was a positive result for the GST!!!

    In this particular article Jason, neither the headline, nor the commentary match the published figures you include. Either you are ‘talking up’ the Cons, or you don’t know how to read the stats! Very disappointing from Crikey. I can read this nonsense any day in Ltd News, which of course I do NOT.
