The Greens are in a winning position in the Victorian State seats of Richmond and Northcote; while its ‘too close to call’ in Brunswick and Melbourne, a special telephone Morgan Poll conducted last night (Tuesday, November 16, 2010) shows.
Two Party preferred vote in the four seats surveyed was:
Richmond — Greens 61% vs ALP 39%
Northcote — Greens 54% vs ALP 46%
Brunswick — Greens 51.5% vs ALP 48.5%
Melbourne — ALP 51% vs Greens 49%.
The Greens obtained a significant vote before preferences — in Richmond (50%), Northcote (50.5%) and Brunswick (41.5%); while in Melbourne the vote is divided fairly evenly across the three major parties.
Gary Morgan says: “Despite the Liberal Party decision on the weekend to preference Labor ahead of the Greens across Victoria, the Greens look set to do particularly well in the Inner Melbourne seats they have been targeting since the last Victorian State election — Victoria seems to be heading for a Hung Parliament.”
