Australian Election – East coast booths close, exit polls tip Howard defeat

leave a comment »

Exit polls are tipping a 53-47 two-party-preferred vote favouring the opposition Labor Party, although the sample size and distribution isn’t made clear. Exit polling also tipping Howard to lose his own seat of Bennelong, although that was qualified as being based on a small sample (3? 300?).

In the ongoing grudge match between media, voters and politicians, media are down 2 nil. Apparently a disgruntled voter attacked an Age journalist with her car. Even though she was apparently aiming for Liberal Party campaigners this leaves the media lagging, with the earlier score coming off an Overington own goal. Voters and politicians are now neck and neck, with an outcome hopefully to be determined in the next 5 hours.

And play has been disrupted in Queensland where heavy rain stopped voting earlier than expected, possibly preventing media from staging a comeback by successfully attacking voters and politicians in the manner that they have for the last 6 weeks.
