Letter to the Editor, Narooma News Weekly.
DID TONY ABBOTT'S VISIT TO NAROOMA INCREASE THE GREENS AND LABOR VOTES?
I couldn't help noticing that the swing to The Greens at the Narooma polling booth in Saturday's election was almost twice the average for the Eden-Monaro electorate.
Could this be a result of Tony Abbott's visit to the Narooma wharf last week?
I also couldn't help noticing that the 2 party preferred Labor vote in Narooma on election day was much higher than the Labor vote in pre-polling. Many of the pre-polling voters would have voted before having an opportunity to see Tony Abbott in action at the Narooma wharf.
Could these outcomes indicate that Narooma voters were more likely to vote Labor or for The Greens as a result of Tony Abbott's visit.
Perhaps Phillip Creagh could explain these interesting results.
