2007 – Election Profile

Category:Election Profiles,National 2007

Kevin Rudd in 2007 achieved the impossible and breathed life into the Whitlam era blue collar Labor voter. Across Australian working class suburbs and electorates, the Whitlam profile stirred into life via the sons and daughters of Gough. In fact the profile of the Rudd majority looks a little like a seventies Gough Whitlam rally held in a Queensland rural Church hall – Blacktown meets Nambour – with high school educated skilled and unskilled blue collar workers sitting side by side with the evangelical and activist religions.

Religion and Politics

Category:Election Profiles,National 2007

In the 2007 election, we saw significant swings to the Christian Kevin Rudd led Labor Party across seats where religions such as Pentecostals and Lutherans were strongly represented and this relationship between the outer urban Pentecostals and the more rural Lutherans proved enduring enough to last right through to the end of the modelling process. Here’s the data on these two faiths and on the major mainstream religions, by new Commonwealth electorates, so you can see for yourselves what impact the loss of Rudd makes on election night.
