Election update #3: Big charge up the middle – ALP 58: COALition 37 !!!!!!!

John Howard’s Coalition seem to be in the poop.

For the House of Representatives (our equivalent of Congress, for US readers… both of you) who ever plans to take Government needs to win 76 seats as there are potentially 150.

With 13% of votes counted, Antony Green has 58 seats to the ALP, 37 seats to Howard’s COALition, and 1 to a candidate for neither party. Some of these seats are marginal and with counting still in progress there will be swings. Also, in about 2 hours from now the Howard Government will begin to pick up as the numbers come in from the West.

Nevertheless, that leaves 54 seats up for prediction with the ALP needing to pick up 39, or roughly 75% of remaining seats, to hold Government. Labor (ALP) need to pick up 22, or less than 35%.
