A ‘neat transfer’ planned for Swan headquarters

Sky News political reporter Tom Connell has used the latest YouGov poll to distribute the main battleground seats in the federal election.

According to the YouGov poll, Labor candidate for the Swan seat Zaneta Mascarenhas is expected to win 9% in the primary vote and beat Liberal candidate Kristy McSweeney.

“What you’re seeing is a pretty neat transfer from the Liberal Party to the ALP, they don’t have to rely on preferences beyond the Greens,” Mr Connell said.

Mr Connell said YouGov’s analysis, which involves the “blending” of polling data, had never been done before in Australia.
