He might be popular with the loony Right, but sensible people know what a dill he is.
Loony right??????......Rumpy he is no more bigger dill than what you have in the Green/Labor left wing socialist coalition....How do you know what that 62% represents? .....They can't all be from the right when you look at what Shorten has polled.....Is it 1 %?..Your vote must have been the only one Shorten received.

You can't really spot a rigged poll can you ?

Which would give Australian voters a "Trump" option with a lot more political experience than Hanson,unlikely to be a lower house option but control in the Senate would be a shoo in IMO

Conversely there are those voters who will return to the Liberal Party once the right wingers have exited.

A split in the Liberal Party; so which section will be the true 'Born to Rule' group?

I believe Cory Bernardi has more support in the Liberal Party than people think......I also believe it is the beginning of the end for Turnbull....Turnbull is not a true Liberal and is more inclined to help Labor win the next election and he will be well rewarded by the Labor Party.

The political revolution has begun and the two major parties are in for one hell of a shock.

O my sad country!
How I weep.

How low is my head, hung down in shame; for
Over the horizon are dark-winged birds
Who seek vengeance.

Is the fight worth the failure?

Who is going to join him? Surely he isn't doing this alone.
I think you may be surprised as to what support he has from the true blue Liberals......I am sure Cory would have done his homework.

Maybe he believed that dodgy poll and thinks he is more popular than the reality. To be fair, the person most worried will be Hanson. If he restored Menzies values as stated then I would vote for him but that isn't what he wants.

I can't see Abbott wanting to join.... and Abetz who has been a disaster for the Tassy Libs will only go if pushed. He enjoys top position on the ticket.

I think the problem is that in reality most parties lean slightly left rightly or wrongly depends on your opinion. no pun intended

and the only options for right voters are extreme candidates.

Although liberal is supposed to be on the right recent but performance has been more centre based.

A determined right party would have cut spending and improved the budget alot more even though it is really hard.



Also the right wing is losing because it is more popular to be center based.
Bernardi's faction is losing so the incentive is to go alone.

1) the upper house quota system makes it a lot easier for minor to get candidates through
2) people are disillusioned with parties not following through with their ideology
3) People are disillusioned with the self interest or perceived self interest of the major parties

I don't always agree with nick xenophon but at least he follows through genuinely with his ideologies/platform.

Bernardi is seizing this opportunity because he probably knows his faction is losing out and this way he will have more influence.

I think people of right leaning without big money or influence are being left out more and more and the popularity of these parties is a response to that as well as well he/she is less worse then the major parties so i will give them a go.

Alot in mainstream media I am seeing issues about left wing issues like diversity and gay marriage. But no one wants to tackle the issues of middle class welfare or the budget. No one seems to care. It just gets delegated to the finance segment or glossed over by spin doctors. How are we going to solve the retirement problem, no one seems to care about that either.

The air time is leaning more and more left.
Is this a response to society or something else I don't know?

I think there is no incentive to lean right for most people. If you are in poverty,sickness or disabilty then you go left. If you are environmentally concerned then you go left. If you are pro gay marriage then left, aborignal issues, mainly left. A penisoner left, to get more pension/ gov assistance while holding you main residence, student or unemployed left for sure. Middle class getting assistance, left to keep your assistance.Involved with unions left again. Artistic projects need gov support so left as well. Education sector left should equate to more funding.

Medical and legal in between, want gov bureaucracy, continued lack of competition and funding - left is good for that but also want lower taxes which right is good for, in general

High income right to reduce your taxes, big business right of course.Older fashion conservative views right as well.

Slowly most people realise it is in their self interest to be left. That is why the right support is going downhill and more in the center. People know that they don't really need the governments help but will take it for sure.

Eventually though one day, tomorrow which never comes, eventually the budget will blow up unless it is managed, but we will just blame the people before us...
