Federal Politics 2013-

Jan 11, 2016

Morgan: 56-44 to Coalition

The first federal poll for the year provides no indication that the New Year break and its attendant political controversies have made much difference to voting intention.

Share

Morgan opens the opinion polling account for 2016 with a result that’s only slightly less good for the government than the thumping lead recorded in its final poll of 2015. On the primary vote, the Coalition is down a point to 47%, Labor is up two to 29%, the Greens are down 1.5% to 13%, and Palmer United are steady on 1%. That pans out to a 56-44 lead to the Coalition on respondent-allocated preferences, down from 57.5-42.5, and a 55.5-44.5 lead on previous election preferences, down from 56-44. The poll was conducted by face-to-face and SMS over the past two weekends from a sample of 2839.

[“The Cambodia deal was shambolic especially considering it was 13 million a refugee”]

Four refugees, payment to Cambodia 2015 was $55 million, the 2016 payment is $79 million.

Still only 4 refugees at the cost of $134 million

[ You don’t get to go to the ABC offices in the morning and post your own personal petty grievances as if it was Facebook. You just don’t.]

No WWP, i think our resident VI is actually referring to Ross’s researched and referenced articles as “personal petty grievances”.

Its a ecstatic religious happy clapper kind of thing for TBA. Deeply delusional, impervious to any information that doesn’t confirm its own established viewpoints and i feel sorry for anyone from QLD that may be unlucky enough to find themselves sharing a public road with the fool.

Yes TBA, it shows how wasteful abuse of tax payers money that Offshoring or outsourcing our own problem is.

That is, outsourcing your problems doesn’t make it cheaper, only more expensive.

E. G. Theodore Posted Friday, January 15, 2016 at 2260 Networks have fibre links (currently up to about 1 Tbps) and electronic switches. Switches have (more or less by definition) more than two links attached. Hence if links are 1 Tbps then bandwidth through the switch needs to be > 1 Tbps (i.e. more bandwidth than the fibre in the links). Switches will typically use buffering (though they need not) as it would be expensive and wasteful to provide 1 Tbps (or whatever) between each pair of link interfaces. Hence buffering is required in practice. And optical buffering is very… Read more »

Steelydan, I agree that is how it has worked so far, but the story did not present that way at all. The presidential crap only works in a honeymoon. Why vote for a man at war with his party?

Steelydan
Guest

The mad right beating on Turnbull only helps his cause, more of the swinging voters seeing how moderate and modern a man he is, and the mad right votes will make there way back to the liberal party through family first or the like. Its the swinging votes that count the 2 or 3 percent that decides elections.

bit odd

Question

The political story on the ch7 evening news Sydney was a bit tonight. Apparently the mad right was beating on Turnbull about the gay mardi-gra. The weird thing is that he hasn’t even said if he’s going.

Even more odd, Shorten got 2 easy news grabs with no rebuttal.

How much was Gillards East Timor…. oh wait wait… Malaysian Solution again?

$400 Million wasn’t it? For 800 People? And then we got 4000 Back?

What. A. Deal.

yep absolute joke but it is all about stopping the boats, nothing else. You come to Australia outside of normal channels you end up in detention, then back to your home country, PNG or Cambodia or some other Country that you don’t want to live in.

The Grand Conspiracy as always is in Nick Ross head. He thinks he is important enough that the ABC gets to bend rules for him, but alas… they don’t. Nobody cares about Nick Ross… he was a nobody at ABC and he’s a nobody now.

The Cambodia deal is all part of the you will never get too Australia mantra, hard hurtful cruel but necessary. And this refugee gig is expensive 70 000000 .7 billion for 12 000 Syrian refugees.

I’d be too worried about your backwash.

There is something amusing about reading a story about editorial influence at the ABC in a Murdoch paper.

Yup, that makes perfect sense in TBA world.

Ross has something to hide and so the organisation he is in conflict with takes steps to help him hide it.

After what he “has to hide” has already been in the public domain for several years, AND after today where a load of people from Whirlpool at least were downloading and saving articles by Ross. 🙂

Seriously, looking at some of the stuff by you today TBA, what have you been toking??

[I have heard a similar argument about the 2nd amendment about it being enshrined in the constitution its an amendment, amend it.]

The point is they haven’t amended it, much like they haven’t left the Convention. If the Coalition wants to they should unsign (or however one gets out of international UN treaties)

Doesn’t matter if we can or not, we signed the Convention relating to the Status of Refugees and therefore we’re obligated to, if the Coalition wanted to take a really hard stance, they’d pull out of the Convention

Of course with FTTB someone needs to own the active equipment in the basement. That entity (whoever it is) has a level of monopoly control over the provision of Internet services to the building’s residents.

Interesting how the supposedly free-market Right create monopolies wherever they go.

How about quantum entanglement (no medium at all) in combination with conventional transmission to support the decoding… I guessing most of the information goes through the quantum part of the channel

Yeah, right.
Come around in your tardis any time in the next 50 years and install one please.

Right here and now, and for the foreseeable future, fibre offers the highest data transmission capability. Copper cables and any form of wireless will never match it.

Labor or liberal wont make a massive difference to where Australia stands globally, the only thing that could have upset the direction of Australia was the labor party’s attitude to asylum seekers but they saw the error of there ways. There heart was in the right place but scary in its naivety.
