Tim G looks at some election chokes – where the party or candidate that should have won, choked and didn’t. His top 5 are:
- Victoria Premier Jeff Kennett in 1999
- Thomas Dewey in the 1948 US Presidential election
- Shimon Peres repeatedly
- Australian Liberal Leader John Hewson in 1983
- Al Gore in 2000
If Tony Abbott doesn’t win this September, he will make the list.
