Most Reignite Democracy Australia followers have turned their backs on the major parties and plan to vote for one of the ‘freedom’ parties at the upcoming Federal election, according to the results of a large survey.
The findings predict a HUGE swing against the three (3) major parties, at least amongst the 14,450 RDA followers who completed the survey in late December of 2021.
While the cause of the swing is not certain, it is likely to have been the Government’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, with the Liberal/National Coalition appearing to be hardest hit.
Back in 2019, 34.7% of the survey respondents voted for the Liberal/National Coalition as their top choice, making it the most popular party at the time.
Now however, just 2% – yes two per cent – say they will be voting for the Coalition in this year’s Federal election, due to take place before May 21, 2022.
In 2019, 13.1% of the respondents voted Labor, making it the third most popular party among the survey respondents, close behind Pauline Hanson’s One Nation party, chosen by 13.4%.
But only 1.6% – that is not a typo – of those doing the survey say they intend to vote for Anthony Albanese’s party in 2021.
Votes for the Australian Greens also look set to slump – from 6.9% in 2019 to 0.7% in 2021.
So, among RDA followers, the rejection of the three major parties is profound.
The chart (Figure 1) below, shows how respondents said they planned to vote in the upcoming Federal election. The intentions of RDA followers are clear – they will be voting for freedom!
The biggest slice -34.9% of RDA supporters – said they will be voting for the United Australia Party. Next was 19.3% for Pauline Hanson’s One Nation Party. Then 9.4% for an independent, 7.6% for the Great Australian Party, and 7.0% for the Liberal Democrats.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison may have taken the tempting ride of populism, but it certainly does not seem to be popular among some of the Coalition’s erstwhile stalwart supporters.
After all, he has suffocated the Liberal-Democratic principles of his party, while forcing through a pandemic agenda of lockdowns, fear propaganda, mandatory vaccination, and divisive discrimination, to the applause of people on the socialist side of politics who would never vote for him anyway!
Instead, the people who have turned away from him are those who hold the core principles of Liberal Democracy dear – the very people who voted Coalition last time!
On these results, it looks like Morrison is leading his party to electoral disaster.
