    Allegra Spender - Wentworth - Seems to be favourite to deffeat sitting member Dave Sharma
    Jo Dyer - Boothby - Probably the least likely of those who I am going to list, but if she gets a reasonable vote it might delay a result in this key seat.
    Monique Ryan - Kooyong - Has a good chance of defeating Josh Frydenburg
    Zoe Daniel - Goldstein - Has an excellent chance
    Sophie Scamps - Mackellar - Has a good chance of getting 2nd but will need a big swing away from the Liberals
    Liz Habermann - Grey - Will probably get to second, but can she take enough votes off the Liberals to win the seat.
    Jake Dempsey - Hinkler - Former Minister state Liberal Government and current Mayor of Bundaburg, so has a high profile but no real idea how he is going to go.
    Kate Chaney - Curtin - Seems to have an excellent chance of winning
    Rob Priestly - Nichols - Seems to be worrying the Nationals in a seat where the Liberals are also running a candidate.
    Stuart Bonds - Hunter - Probably only a long shot but Bonds got over 20% at the previous election as a One Nation candidate.
    Dai Le - Fowler - It seems she will poll strongly but probably will not beat Keneally
    Kylea Tink - North Sydney - Is putting together a strong challenge to Liberal member Trent Zimmerman

    In addition to these possible newcomers the current independents, Steggal - Waringah, Haines - Indi, Wilkie - Clark and minor party members Sharkie - Mayo, Katter - Kennedy and Bandt - Melbourne all seem to be in good positions to be reelected.

    The Greens, as always, seem confident of getting a second seat but I don't think they will.

    In the senate there is at least 2 independents who seem to have good chances of winning. Nick Xenophon who is aiming to return to the Senate in SA and David Pocock who might win a seat in the ACT.
    I missed a couple who may poll well
    Nicolette Boele - Bradfield
    Caz Heise - Cowper
    And there might even be more.

    Craig Garland (Braddon) seems to like his chances. He is close to winning the poster count around my area.

    One of his big things is opposition to mooted salmon farms off the NW Tas coast. He is also a darling of the umbrella group supporting "freedom-loving" (= anti-vaxx/pro-covid) parties, but while the other groups have their attitude front and centre in their campaigning Craig is somewhat oblique about it.

    His salmon position should get some traction in the western parts but maybe not go so well in Devonport - one of the salmon outfits is based there so they have two reasons to be in favour of salmon farms somewhere else.

    I don't think he is likely to get more than around 10% so I did not include him, but I might be proven wrong

    And as an aside I agree that salmon farming is toxic, it should be banned.

    Right Why should lawyers study and practise industrial relations law when anyone can DIY?

    A reasonable forecast given his PB. But he's more professional this time, having lots of spiffy posters and recruiting booth workers.

    Braddon could well be a bit of a mess. There are ten candidates, none the sort whose mates trick them into signing up while drunk, do no campaigning and score 150 votes. Of course the minor parties are mainly standing as a loss leader for the Senate, but several could poll higher than the gap at the end. The Greens candidate, a doctor, is more respectable than some; the Local Party (are they fans of the League of Gentlemen?) have a prominent arty identity; and the One Nation candidate is a colourful local character, or at least his alpaca is.

    Georgia Steele (Hughes) is almost equal favourite in betting.

    Yeah, I tried but I failed in making a comprehensive list. It is not beyond the bounds of possibilty that there could be 15 independents in the Parliament, but I don't think it will be that many.

    My prediction for the election is
    Labor 77, Coalition 61, Independents 8, KAP 1, CA 1, Green 1

    I might have underestimated the amount of independents.
    The Greens claim they are going to win Griffith and perhaps Brisbane and maybe others but I do not see it.

    I am predicting Liz Habermann to win the SA seat of Grey.
    She has a high profile and a record of success in campaigning for voluntary euthansia which was made legal last June.
    She has proved she can be a vote winner in the area due to her all winning the seat of Flinders in the state election.
    The electorate proved is was willing to vote for a 3rd party candidate in 2016 when Andrea Broadfoot went very close to winning. The Liberals should have less support this time.

    It's unlikely they'll be wrong again, especially as they are far more decisive for Labor this time. Although I still can't believe that the Greens will win Ryan!

    It's strange that nobody has voted for a Labor minority government, even though all the likely adjacent options on both sides are taken.

    Good luck - predicting every seat is almost impossible, as there's bound to be some surprises.

    It is amazing that Albanese is likely to win given that the word ''economics'' makes him run.

    A lack-lustre opposition vs a corrupt government. The choice is not so amazing.
