pollbludger.net

The Poll Bludger is otherwise known as William Bowe, an Australian commentator on election campaigns, opinion polls and voting behaviour, and the publisher of the Poll Bludger blog for Crikey. The blog relates new poll results as soon as they become available; provides weekly updates of the BludgerTrack poll aggregate; and compiles Australian electoral news. This site is my online repository for archival material and stuff that can't be accommodated by the Crikey architecture.
