NSW 2019 – election day

March 23, 2019 - 08:00 -- Admin

Polls have just opened across New South Wales. This post is just a placeholder and open thread to post comments during the day. I may post a few updates here if there are developments.

The final Newspoll was released last night, with the Coalition on 51% of the two-party-preferred vote, up one point on the previous poll. The poll suggests a drop in the Coalition primary since 2015 from 46% to 41%, but only a 1% increase in the Labor primary. Interestingly the poll has the Coalition winning 52-48 in Sydney but tied 50-50 in the rest of NSW, which translates to a bigger swing in regional areas, as predicted.

I’ll see everyone at 6pm tonight.
