I watched most of the first debate last night. To me it was a draw.

I'll be voting Liberal and think Scott Morrison is doing a good job but it seems inevitable that Labor will win.

Nearly tripled the national debt.  Yeah that’s “doing a good job”

I thought Morrison was very calm, controlled and full of facts and figures off the top of his head.

Shorten was useless...  had no idea of policies, how to fund his promises, and full of facial expressions that showed him for the Pinocchio that he is.

Whilst I do not support either Liberal or Labour, I think Morrison won it last night.

Listening to ABC radio they claim that Shorten won it , didn’t watch so cant comment on it . 

Mate of mine worked on site when shorten  was union rep , first class wan### and trouble maker were the only words I can repeat on here. 

Not sure who to vote for,  this  is the first time I have voted in oz .

They come around fast here.  Last time around I was working in a polling station but they have just changed the rules and only citizens can work there now....so it will have to be the next one where I vote for the first time.

I don't really know why he is unpopular with a lot of people.

He seems fine to me. A lot better than Gillard and Rudd anyway,

I was certainly happy to see the back of Rudd.  Smug pompous little f@rt of a man.  Gillard wasn't quite as bad as Prime Minister.  I just can't take to Shorten.  Can't quite put my finger on why.  I just don't trust him.  Mind you I can't think of any politician I trust.

Just spent the morning researching the applicants in the election and deciding who to vote for to do the least damage..... so hard as none at all inspire me and I was determined not to do the "close your eyes and stick a pin" thing.  

Off to submit my early poll now as I will be travelling out of WA on election day.

 Our local member is quite good and he happens to be a lib. If there was a good independent I would go for them but there isn't. Wonder how many votes Clive Palmer will get? My SIL is voting for Pauline but I couldn't bring myself to do that! Absolutely cannot stand Bill, creepy little sucker.

What happens when candidates drop out so close to the election? Surely fairer if they get replaced by another candidate from the same party otherwise people who would have voted for them lose their vote.

It has to be said, Scott Morrison has done a remarkable job.

Pretty much written off by everyone as having no chance when he took over from Malcolm Turnbull.

He has been nothing short of brilliant.

And Labor overplayed their hand with going totally overboard on the climate change scare and high taxing agenda.

There was no high taxing agenda.  As history shows Coalition govts are usually the high taxes.

Politicians will never save the planet, just their jobs. It's up to the little people to make many little changes to solve this issue
