Conservatives Celebrate Stunning Win in Australian Elections…

The Australian election was held today; voting is compulsory as everyone over the age 18 is required to vote; turnout was greater than 95%…  and all the media and pollsters are stunned, shocked, jaws-agape, as the conservative coalition has received a stunning, unexpected, unanticipated victory.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has won the election.  Yes Alice, 2019 media in Australia look identical to media in the U.S. circa November 2016.

The economy, immigration and push-back against the insufferable climate-change nonsense appear to be the top issues that led to Morrison’s surprising win.  None of the pollsters or media saw it coming.  The BBC are stunned:

BBC – […] The final result of the election may not be known for some hours, but with more than 70% of votes counted the [Conservative] Coalition has won, or is ahead in, 74 seats in its quest for a 76-seat majority, with Labor on just 66 seats.

[…] Try finding someone who says they saw this result coming.

For well over two years, the coalition has trailed behind Labor in the opinion polls, and the assumption had been it would be Labor’s turn to govern.

But somehow Scott Morrison managed to turn things around at the 11th hour – and he did it largely on his own.

With some of his cabinet colleagues considered too toxic to appear in public on the campaign trail, ScoMo made this election about him, and his ability to be the trustworthy, daggy-dad Australia needed.  (read more)

.

Labor leader Bill Shorten , who has led Labor since it lost office in 2013, conceded defeat and congratulated Morrison.  Shorten’s losing moonbat platform was centered on creating a “fairer society”, similar to the social justice movement in the far-left U.S. Democrat party.

The labor movement planned to increase taxes on the wealthy and bring social justice demands to central government.  Their agenda was counting on strong support from college-aged students and climate change activists.  However, the majority of Australians saw the predictable economic damage that was certain from the proposals to raise taxes and institute the Australian version of the Green New Deal.

Australian left-wing media is going bananas….

The progressive movement is crying in the streets.

      Totally agree with that statement Sundance and as one of those Aussie’s that went all out in helping preserve our way of life from the socialist labor/greens I am thrilled. Now Scomo as he is known must start to clean out the climate change garbage and make sure that the socialists cannot get back into power through the back door as they did when that Turnball knifed our one and only true conservative climate change sceptic. Unfortunately Tony Abbott lost his seat because the soros backed getup heaped monies and some very nasty tactics against him. But all in all thrilled with the results and maybe Scomo has enough sense to watch and learn some tips from your great President Trump.

        Yep, Tony Abbott should still be PM. He is probably the closest thing to P-DJT we had.
        I told anyone who would listen that Donald Trump had 2016 sewn up, but I honestly didn’t give the Australian Coalition much chance. Pleasantly surprise but cautious that ScoMo is just another globalist plant. I’m still not a fan of how he became PM in the first place.

        Would be great to see Cory Bernardi gain some influence in the near future as well.

        Let’s hope the new legit government does some good things for Australia. A great result.

    The incumbent Liberal party, led by Prime Minister Scott Morrison, was predicted to lose, according to the last 54 polls:

    Some analysts gave Morrison a 0.024% chance of winning. In other words, they were 99.976% sure that Morrison would lose.

    The election was primarily about global warming. The (losing) Labor party wanted to trash the economy as an anti-warming measure. The people voted against doing that.

    • Dr.Jay says:

      That makes no sense by any measure. The spread in the chart is just 2%, or really just 1% as there are only two parties that matter. When 1% people switch from one side to the other that is enough to even the score (mandatory voting in AUS, no staying at home).

      In reality it is not so simple because AUS has more than two parties, so these kind of comparisons can be dangerous (people going from Labor to Greens does not hurt the left, it can hurt Labor but doesn’t increase the chances for the Liberal/National coalition (Conservatives))

      IDK what kind of huge number that poll above is based upon, but if that’s from a low number, say 5000 or less, than a margin of 2% is unlikely, so even assuming that the poll wasn’t spiked then Labor vs Liberal is 51 to 49, plus minus 2. AFAIK that is a poll of polls and the inaccuracy of each contributing poll carries over, it doesn’t really reduce as some people seem to think. That may be were the error lies. Normal inaccuracy is 3 to 5%.

      Having seen the details of some of the USA polls it was clear that many of those were spiked or very poorly done. That may be the case here as well, but with numbers so close the chance that the Liberal (Conservative)/National coalition would win is much much higher than 0.024%. At best the chances for labor would have been something like 90%, assuming the polls weren’t spiked.

    ScoMo was not going to be beaten by Shorten. Even the bookies didn’t know that, thanks fellas. See you on Monday.
    Preferred PM in the polls was always ScoMo despite Shorten’s Labor Party being a shoo-in in the same polls.
    How did I know? Projected body language is great tell. Shorten projects a culturally marxist union desk clerk. ScoMo projects authenticity, a decent bloke, what you see is exactly what you get.

    That said, the left are already frantically spinning the defeat of former Liberal PM (ie. Conservative PM, liberal in Australia is a good word, means classical liberal, not a marxist) Abbot by a global warming hysteric “independent” as proof Australia voted for “action” on pretend CAGWarming.
    The devastating anti CAGW socialist vote in Queensland makes that propaganda worthy of CNN.

    Like the US, Australia’s greatest national cultural threat is from massive 3rd world immigration, tragically both ScoMo and Shorten and the Business Round Table love it. Like the US, a permanent demographic voting change is coming.

  5. ScoMo is a good bloke and has immense authority now as not only will he end up with a majority in The House he will have done it whilst being white-anted by a leftist, globalist faction (led by former PM Turnbull) of the party that wanted to see it lose government. He needs now to shift to being an “Australia first” Prime Minister as he claimed he would be last night – I’m not convinced he will be but anything is better than a Shorten far-left controlled government so there’s that.

    And here’s a hint for the US.
    Australia does manual voting with paper ballots marked by hand, double counted by the Aust. Electoral Commission, with scrutineers from both parties observing. No hanging shards, no second rate voting machines, no boxes of ballots conveniently found to sway a close election. The US merely needs to scale up the operation. That way there are multiple counting sources and no computer algorithm that someone somwhere has a key to.

    17 years ago, I lived in Australia for the better part of a year. It was a nice place with great folks, particularly outside the cities.

    Inside the cities It was the first time I ever encountered the insane social justice/cultural Marxist ideology that has become commonplace here, but which at the time was totally alien to me.

    Australia then was severely divided along the identical lines our country is post Obama. Looking back, I wish I understood that I was looking at my County’s future.

    The insidious death cult that is the modern left had taken root there and sprouted its first flowers. I scoffed at it when I encountered it, thinking suck a patently wacky world view could never obtain a meaningful foot hold in the USA. How wrong I was.

    A vote like this gives me hope for America because it shows that even when a country finds itself hurtling toward the oblivion of collectivism/progressivism/socialism whatever label you give it, still enough sensible and decent people may be around to fight back.

    Particularly when you consider that the Aussie vote is compulsory. Everyone is forced to vote. Which makes the typical leftist whining and finger pointing at the result particularly amusing.

      Every election in Australia sees a turnout of about 95%.
      What this means is that there is no chance of election fraud like stuffing boxes with pre-prepared fake ballots etc.
      When the USA has like a 60% turnout, who knows if 10% or 15% of the votes are fake? You can’t know.
      Furthermore, it is NOT compulsory to vote. It IS compulsory to turn up, have your name crossed off and receive your ballot papers. You can then do whatever you like with them.
      Yesterday I got my ballot papers. For the lower house, I defaced my ballot paper because I live in an ultra safe lefty electorate.
      But for the senate, I voted for conservative candidates.

      Taking the time and bother to turn up once every couple of years is a civic duty. Libertarians don’t seem to understand that the unintended consequence of non-compulsory voting is voter fraud opportunities.

    Im an Aussie so here is my view. In Australia the Liberals are the moderate conservatives in social and political topics. They favour individual responsibility and dislike big government.
    Labour is the left wing socialist type party. Both partys from time to time swing to far to the extreme and then get voted out or loose and election.
    Historically
    Labour ( bit socialist ) has done most of the significant nation building programs. A national irrigation plan, national broadband, national health system ( coupled with a private health system ).
    The Liberal default is tax cuts and cut government programs and do nothing.
    So we regularly swing from one to the other, each party correcting the excesses of the other.
    This time around the Liberals ran with tax cuts and do nothing . This is not sarcasm, this is really how they ran. Tax cuts and more of the same.
    Labour went insane and ran with
    1 unasked for and unfair tax increases on superannuation and retirees
    2 a big change in taxation on property. poorly explained
    3 insanely expensive green energy policys which at least 1/3 of the electorate think is bull

    Its only the swinging voters who matter and Labour made themselves a big target with their political insanity. I think labour believed the polls saying they would win ( foolish ) and went bold. Asking for a big mandate ( the insane points 1 2 3 ). So they lost.

        Menzies said we dont need to nationalize the banks, but we need some social legislation.!
