The intersection of state and federal electoral behaviour: A longer view

In response to Peter Brent’s analysis in Inside Story (14.7.16) of state-based voting trends witnessed at the 2016 federal election, TJ Ryan Foundation Research Associate, Paul Rodan, offers a longer view of how electoral behaviour at state and federal polls intersects at different times. The author argues that Queensland and Western Australia stand out, in that incumbent state governments there, of either political persuasion, exert less influence upon the vote at federal elections, particularly in terms of support for federal Labor.
