It gets worse - much worse. They are predicting that the balance of power in the Senate will be held by assorted wackjobs - Clive Palmer's man Lazo, Pauline Hanson (fan-fucking-tastic..) and a few of the old holdouts from previous debacles.

It's not 50.01% turn up and 25.01% of the voters elect the government, as had happened in the US with W.
