    Yep or 5th since 2010 if you count both of Rudd's two terms.

    And most likely increasing to the 6th change in 7 years after next years election.

    Reflects the disenchantment the electorate has with the incumbent, rather than how palatable the alternative is. And is a reflection of the deteriorating Australian economy and the coming economic shitstorm that's about to wash over Oz.

    It looks like the conservatives are in pace to keep their majority in Australia, another poll that understimates the right wing.

    Labor was leading in the polls to win the most seats.

    It was a vote against Labour's pro immigration stance

    Maybe, that is why some independents won, they did not have the baggage of labor.

    It was an anti-establishment vote. The primary vote swing against the ruling coalition was larger than the swing against Labor.

    In total a 5% swing to UAP and One Nation.

    With One Nation the biggest swing towards - an anti-immigration party
