I worked at a polling station yesterday (alllllll day! ) and nobody seemed to be particularly eager for either to win.
There wasn't any excitement and from the comments made I got the impression that cynicism was the over-riding emotion.
I think it was also pretty telling that, once our count was done, everybody was more interested in whether Port had beaten Collingwood than who'd won our part of the election!
