Megalogenis on Green’s Day
Before the election, George Megalogenis was already seeing a swing to the Greens. Back in July Megalogenis called the rise of the Greens as a “decade-long trend… [with] half the new Greens bandwagon probably comes from the Democrats”.
And in the seat of Melbourne, Megalogenis predicted the rise of Adam Bandt at the start of August. Megalogenis called it as “Labor has more to fear from the Greens than the Coalition… The nation’s youngest electorate is Melbourne and is ripe for the Greens now that Lindsay Tanner is leaving politics.” He saw the election as a “five horse race” and perhaps with Bob Katter riding into town he may have underestimated only slightly.
