    Im so over it already so i went with not sure don't care. besides both sides seem to be as useless and squandering as the other. Regardless of what they bring in that will effect investors, I will look for the opportunities and prosper.

    Probably come back with the same result. Labour is pumping out some popular public policies e.g. bank royal commission, axing negative gearing, supporting whyalla etc. which may lead to a surprise win.

    Regardless of which bunch of useless idiots is elected.

    I so wanted to go with the easy-out of an apathetic 'dont know, dont care' answer.

    But I didnt. I might feel a touch apathetic but who wouldn't after the last 10 years in Aus politics?

    What I really want is stability and a party who has a sensible, longer-term plan. I then want public access to the details of that plan, not just their casual interviews on Sky News Business or whatever, about 'the future'.

    Whether that be labor, libs, greens, or some independent or whatever, I want a party who can bring at least medium term stability.

    But SeeChange's poll is about who will win, not who we 'want' to win, so my utopian ideal of a ruling party probably isnt worth banging on about haha :rolleyes:

    If we are talking about what we want, I'd like a real democracy please (Switzerland does it so it exists), where I can vote for something more than which clown is gonna be in power for the next few years.

    We don't even have that. We vote for a clown and before their first term is up they get replaced by another clown.

    Mine is both who I want to win and who I think will win - Liberal, always. Labour will just keep borrowing money from the IMF to spend and waste on stupid policies to get and stay elected. Welfare idiots and greenies vote for labour. If you care about our economy and how it's run and want our children to have a job going into the future, it must be Liberal.

    the other way to look at it is that its not good to have so much uncertainty. Irrespective of who wins, i know businesses in particular want certainty, stability and know what they are going to get for the full term. Even if they dont fully like the policies, they will adjust their game to adapt. What they are hesitant to do is spend big bucks on multi year investment projects only to have someone else in who has the potential to change things around ( direction, strategies, intent, priorities etc).

    Libs will win the Lower House with a greatly reduced majority. Currently we have 90 Coalition, 55 Labor and 5 others. I'm thinking this will go down to a 10 seat difference. Upper House hard to say. Many idiotic people have been conned by the coalition and will stupidly vote for them again. Go figure.
