UPDATE. Other trends are also encouraging:
The Liberals and Nationals have moved within striking distance of breaking Labor’s stranglehold on state power, with Labor losing its lead in NSW and struggling in Queensland.
Academic and leading election analyst Malcolm Mackerras said the defeat of Labor in NSW could hurt the Howard Government, boosting Kim Beazley’s chances against the federal Coalition in late 2007.
“I think it would be good for federal Labor if Labor in NSW was defeated,” he said. “It is a fact that Howard benefits from all the states being Labor.”
There might be something to that, although Mackerras is primarily known as a reverse indicator.
