There was a report today in the SMH that headlined “Christian leaders say religious freedom was among issues that influenced voters”
The counting is still under way… the AEC has downloads of all of the votes going back quite some time… I took a look at the numbers don’t read that way.
It’ll be another couple of weeks I think before they finalise the results and count all the other types of votes, so I’ll leave it for now as far as a direct comparison goes, but the religious groups didn’t poll numbers greater than they would previously. In fact a couple of them are likely to be well below.
I’ll probably look at the stats in time. It’s still doing my head in how the chips fell as they did.
