The Group Voting Ticket

As an ungrouped independent, Karl Pongracic doesn’t have a group voting ticket of his own.  But it’s sometimes illuminating to see how others see our independents.

In this instance, however, there isn’t much to learn.  He’s scoring worst with the hard left parties, who are all putting him 40th or later out of a possible 46 places on the ticket, with the exception of the Greens, who put him 25th.  He’s faring slightly better with the right wing parties, but he’s usually still somewhere in the 30s. His best result is being placed at 13th by Derryn Hinch’s Justice Party, but Hinch seems to like all the independents, so that doesn’t tell us much.
