I wrote sarcastically on this the other day, but the conservatives do seem convinced that if the election was held again, people would change their votes in their favour.
Somehow the time line skewed into this tangent, creating an alternate 2010 election result in which Tony Abbott did not become PM as he was certain he should have. Alternate to Liberals and News Ltd columnists, but reality to everyone else.
Which seems extraordinary to me. I haven’t seen Abbott do anything post-election other than whinge about releasing his costings, storm petulantly out of press conferences, and order the independents to support him. Why does he think this will have won over new voters? I’m not sure to which voters on the ALP side of the ledger, the voters he’d need to convert, such antics would appeal.
As you might expect, I certainly have no intention of changing my vote.
So here’s the question: would you change your vote? From what, to what? Why? Do you know anyone else who would? How? Why?
I am genuinely curious as to the mindset of anyone taking the hung parliament result as a reason to switch from Labor to the Coalition, or vice versa.
