Australia’s right wing Liberals will take a generation to recover from loss, polling expert says

The Liberal Party has a huge problem on its hands – they lost the 2018 Victorian election and lost significant support in its safe seats in Melbourne, and they took no lessons from it whatsoever… Melbourne is effectively now a very centre-left city and the Liberal Party thinks it’s still the 1990s.
