Vent Your Psephy Spleen – Open Thread
Posted by Possum Comitatus on October 15, 2007
While I’m waiting for Crikey to put my posts up so I can link into them, it might be time to start an open pseph thread.
Vent your spleen, pick on a journo, take a bat to a pollster, find your inner Crosby Textor or even come up with a grand unified theory of psephology. Have any politician sightings? Any poll goss? Any goat entrail readings?
This is the thread for you.
And how about that Gallaxy – primaries on 44/45 Coalition/ALP, yet with the Greens on 7% and the independents and others on 4%. Somehow out of that Galaxy gets a 45/55 preference flow favouring the ALP to give a TPP of 51/49 to the ALP.
Smells a bit fishy, particularly with Rudd running a preferred PM level of 54 to Howards 38 in the same poll, and Rudds satisfaction rating being 71% to Howards 47%.
Galaxy, what have you been smoking? Or what were your respondents smoking?
Under more frequent preference distributions of late, the ALP TPP vote would be around the 53 mark.
Song of the day is something very unpunkish, but still female. Some of the best pop-political lyrics for a pop artist I’ve heard for a long time.Pink: “Dear Mr President”. Fear not, aggressive chic-punk will be returning shortly
