Going to be a bloodbath

Kevin Rudd and the ALP are going to be slaughtered this weekend. Only the seriously deluded (like Rudd) are claiming the election will be close.

As I said last week, when the bookies throw you under the bus it is all over.

KEVIN Rudd is facing an election wipeout with a new poll showing Labor falling further behind the Coalition.

The Prime Minister is preparing to mount a flying campaign blitz across the nation as a Galaxy Poll predicts he will lose the September 7 election in a 53:47 result.

As the Prime Minister finalises plans to announce a $10,000 tax break for small business at his Brisbane campaign launch today, campaign chiefs also fear the swings could be bigger in key marginal seats.

The national Galaxy poll published in today’s Sunday Herald Sun confirms Mr Rudd’s numbers have gone backwards since the election was called, with Labor’s primary vote falling to 35 per cent. 

On a two party preferred basis the Coalition is on track for a 53:47 result and a 3 per cent national swing since the 2010 election.

Asked who will win the election, a clear majority of voters – 63 per cent – have predicted Tony Abbott will emerge as Australia’s next Prime Minister.

But it could be worse for Labor in key marginal seats, any substantial swing could result in a massive Coalition win.

An exclusive analysis of Galaxy polls during the campaign suggests swings of 4 per cent to the Liberals in the marginals polled, delivering a likely majority of up to 90 seats in the 150 seat Parliament.
