How young women may deliver poll shock

The final countdown to polling day is on. And the female factor has emerged as the focus point in this last crucial week of campaigning.

In The West today there is a revealing analysis of the voting intentions of 50 young WA women.

After recent polling that showed Prime Minister Scott Morrison has a big problem with female voters under 30, we took to the streets to hear it from the horse’s mouth.

As our story puts it: “What we heard was a chorus of criticism. delivered virtually in unison by a cohort who complain that ScoMo’s values, language and ignorance of women’s issues leave them ice-cold.”

In addition, Painted Dog Research, commissioned by The West, found 60 per cent of young women aged 18 to 29 expressed dissatisfaction with the Prime Minister, compared with 33 per cent for Labor leader Anthony Albanese.

It’s startling how a man, who is a father to two young daughters, has managed to turn off female voters to such a degree. On Monday, Mr Morrison’s wife Jenny was brought in to join him on the campaign trail perhaps in a bid to get the Prime Minister a more favourable reception.
