Griffith looks to be an outlier in Qld metro seats

Swings to / from Labor in Queensland metropolitan seats on the current (Sunday morning) AEC numbers are very interesting. It looks to me as though Griffith is an outlier: Griffith -5.42; Brisbane -3.2; Petrie -2.97; Forde -2.48; Lilley -2.05; Oxley -1.85; Ryan -0.81; Bonner -0.32; Rankin +0.53; Moreton +0.92; Blair +1.43; Bowman +1.43.

I live in Griffith and have been surprised by the amount of money, time and effort the Glasson camp have been putting in to this seat.

In the neighbouring south side seat of Bonner, where my friend Laura Fraser Hardy was the Labor candidate against the incumbent Mr Vasta, the swing against Labor was markedly different. In Griffith’s other neighbouring south side seat, Moreton, Labor member Graham Perrett appears to have had a swing to him.

Update Sunday afternoon:

Forde -2.52
Rankin +0.44
Moreton +0.77
Bowman +1.38
