Labor fizzles in NSW

The SMH reports:

Michael Daley has vowed to remain as leader of the NSW Labor Party, amid the likelihood he will be challenged for the top job in the wake of Labor’s disastrous state election result.

Daley has only been leader for five months. He may not get to serve a year.

However, inside the Labor Party shock at the result had turned to anger by Sunday monring as it became apparent that Labor, in a best-case scenario, would win only two seats – Coogee and Lismore.
“People are ropeable,” one senior party figure said.

Up until a week ago, the Coalition had not led in the polls for 12 months. Labor were looking very likely to win or at least reduce the Coalition to a minority.

It shows campaigns do matter.
