Galaxy are serious pollsters, so they have to be taken seriously, even if I don't exactly buy all of them.

The "poll" showing Rudd trailing 48-52 in Griffith was conducted by the same people who showed Beattie trailing 40-60 in Forde!? Well, that's heartening news since we can now be somewhat confident that that's garbage.

And the 60% primary for the LNP in Lindsay

Pretty much says everything I've been thinking about robo-polling

57-43 in NSW?! Give me a break!

It backs up the result of the electorate polls released a few days back.

Considering it doesn't parallel any of the intelligence in the ground...  plus those poll were jokes.

And yes, there's no way the VIC number is right either ... 17% Greens? No.

The data is rubbish.

Just to clarify... when you say 'hospice' you mean a nursing home, not the way I think of hospice, as in a palliative care facility.

I haven't decided yet.

Could you imagine the swing state map for 2016 if it's Christie vs. Clinton?

If it's close nationally, it has the potential to be the most fun close election we've had in quite a while.  It wouldn't be able to match 1976 though.....when there were 20 states where the margin was within 5 points (including CA, NY, PA, IL, and TX)!  Imagine how much fun it would have been to follow the 1976 election if we'd had the internet back then, and a forum like this one.


Oh yeah, the forum would crash .... oh wait.

Hmmm... this doesn't make my decision any easier, or clearer.
8261  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE STANDING COMMITTEE: National Security Committee on: August 21, 2013, 07:30:27 pm
I would suggest an officials or Foreign Minister-level meeting in neutral territory to have a discussion on what issues COULD be part of a higher-level.

I think a prospect of sanction relaxation HAS to be part of it.
8262  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Senate Bill: Amendment to V.2.5 of the Constitution (Final Vote) on: August 21, 2013, 06:55:34 pm
Aye

57-43 in NSW?! Give me a break!

The more I look at the Newspoll, the more fail I see. Not even the most ardent LNP supporter can tell me that those numbers make sense...

Gah time difference people! I was an aye FTR

As for the forum 'or Town Hall debate' - remember I said I believed Abbott was a clear but not emphatic winner last time? Rudd won this emphatically. Rudd started positively but then eventually eyeballed Abbott demanding details of where the cuts will come from. There was another exchange in which Abbott said 'does this guy ever shut up?'

Rudd was passionate and fired up and Abbott looked incredibly uncomfortable and stiff, translated from the original Sky News 'Rudd was hyperactive and Abbott was calm' lol.

I am withdrawing from the at-large Senate election.

Statement

Over the past few days I have been faced with new RL demands for my time, energy and attention. I have had to make a call as to whether or not it is responsible to continue in my campaign if I cannot be as active as possible. When faced with a similar circumstance during my first term as President, I put the interests of the country ahead whatever personal gain I might receive from re-election.

I have made that decision again, and it was just as hard. I have decided to withdraw myself from the at-large Senate race.

For those not in Australia - I'd advise to look into this paid parental leave drama... 
8269  General Discussion / History / Re: Did AIDS retard the development of the gay rights movement? on: August 20, 2013, 08:41:14 pm
No, I agree with KCGuy, if anything it energised the gay rights movement, gave it a real impetus.
8270  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Polnut for Senate HQ - Announcement coming shortly on: August 20, 2013, 08:31:10 pm
Senator Polnut will be making an announcement in approximately 3 hours.

Oh... I don't know... maybe restricting access to firearms would be a good start.
8272  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Christie to sign ban on gay conversion therapy, says homosexuality is not a sin on: August 20, 2013, 05:10:14 pm
He's wrong. Simple as that. His chances for the GOP nod are as good as dead with this.

Extrapolate?

You know his posting history... that should be enough.
8273  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Australia - 7 September 2013 on: August 20, 2013, 05:06:05 pm

The one thing you learn about Canberra, the press gallery know a lot more... they could be saying a lot more. But they're quoting it for a reason.


Both sides know this election is a lot closer than people are perceiving it...
8274  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: The It's Not Up To You Act (At Final Vote) on: August 20, 2013, 07:12:52 am
While I disagree with those who want to lift all late-term restrictions... this Bill addresses practical needs and it has my support.

Aye.
8275  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Australia - 7 September 2013 on: August 20, 2013, 01:35:03 am
I don't get why people vote early if they don't need to. I enjoy the process of voting on the day and all the hooplah.
