Why is Abbott holding his launch in Queensland . His conservative newspaper polls tell us he has won convincingly up there. Abbott has no connection with Queensland. Conservatives up there have too much class for him and conservatives in Queensland are genuine hillbillies. May I cite Barnaby Joyce. It tells me Abbott knows the polls have been tricked up to discourage progressive voters and that th…e election is very much a contest. The Greens, Katter and Palmer are all preferencing Rudd. It will be a big help. Remember what happened to President Obama in the last election. Murdochs newspapers and their polls said he would lose badly. He won easily. Rudd must do what Barack Obama and Bill Clinton did. They campaigned vigorously until the last minute of the last day.
