Australia Votes in Close 2010 Elections: Use TipTop, Not the Psychic Croc for Predictions

20 Aug

The federal election campaign in Australia has reached its final days with the governing Labor Party & opposition Coalition Party neck and neck. Today a psychic saltwater crocodile picked Labor Party leader Julia Gillard to be elected Prime Minister by gobbling a chicken hanging from her head shot (more from the National Post). TipTop’s social media sentiment predictions are a bit more refined and still show the candidates running head-to-head, except in Perth where the Coalition leader Tony Abbott was lagging. 

Using TipTop to follow the Australian vote is easy. You can get parliamentary election discussions broken down into browsable topics & positive and negative snippets by searching #ausvotes. To see what the important issues are for Australian voters from ABC’s Australia Votes 2010 twitter thread, view TipTop’s results for #myvote to see more than just streaming tweets. From this real-time social search perspective you can see changing sentiment trends, hot topics & the tips to show you what people are thinking about regarding the issues, candidates, and the overall election.






Elections are local events, so today on  TipTop’s hub page at we feature social media polling results for both candidates for Prime Minister in key cities across Australia – the day before Saturday’s election outcome.  Below are cities for which we got Julia Gillard & Tony Abbott sentiments’ results by entering the candidates name into the TipTop search box and selecting the city from the “Any place” pull-down menu.

    This is awesome. I cannot wait to see how the election results turn out in the next couple of hours. Would TipTop once again prove to be a good predictor of voter intentions?

    I’d be interested to see stats for other products as well.
    Would you have a repartition by zone ? I think some zones are a lot more active and this information could explain the crisis/job effects.

    If you’re one who likes a faster paced game and like to move a lot, you can still enjoy the Backman position, however you many not want to carry so much gear so you’re not as weighted down.
