THREAD to show booth-level swings in two party preferred in major cities. Data is preliminary from AEC, will do more when full data comes out. These maps show SWINGS not overall winner. Doesnt include seats with Indie contests.
Here's Sydney. Clearly follows the Red-Rooster Line
The Red-Rooster line was devised by @THE_REAL_BIGJEZ, and is explained here honisoit.com/2017/09/food-f…. It basically uses red-rooster franchises to highlight the class divisions in Sydney. Here's it mapped over booth-level swing.
Canberra shows reasonably consistent swings to the liberals in the Southern suburbs, and also surprisingly a speckled swing to libs in areas where a heap of uni students live (near ANU and Dickson)
I don't know enough about Melbourne to give any real analysis but here's the swing map. I also switched up the style to show electorates more clearly.
Adelaide, Boothby looks like it has pretty strong swings throughout - other than traditionally strong labor areas. Will be interesting to see where that falls
Perth again shows some traditional Liberal stongholds swinging towards Labor, but not enough to make a difference.
Darwin shows a decent swing to Liberals, additionally all booths in Alice Springs and 2/3 Booths in Katherine swung towards the Liberals. Not enough to swing any seats, however.
Inner Brisbane fared quite well compared to the rest of Queensland, but again it goes to show how Labor's message didn't resonate with a lot of people who clearly see traditional economic growth as trumping environmental concerns
Queensland more broadly, however, was not a giving lover to the Labor party.
Neither is Northern Tasmania, which makes Bass look like a bit of a hard sell to retain for the Labor party.
Here's Australia overall. Still preliminary numbers, will be interesting to see when the full results are out, certainly interested in looking at swing to the minor and fringe parties.
Here's Sydney with electorates btw
