CAMPAIGN DAY 33: 8 TO GO
The election draws near at last. I’ve been here in Australia since July and it feels like we’ve been campaigning for 5 months straight. Things are becoming pretty busy, so just a few dot points:
Labor’s got a good series of ads, the first of which is well critiqued here. YouTube has hardly played a pivotal role in the campaign but it’s had an interesting, constant rollover of individually generated pieces – my favourite (by a contributor who is by no means signed up to the Liberals) is this. It’s not been a good campaign for Tony Abbott. To satisfy those readers who insist that polls are the only things that matter, John Major notwithstanding, the current polling is like this. On the other hand, those who might prefer focus grouping would be interested in this. I’ve got an article on the election available here.
