Canberra, Aug 31 (ANI): Over one in ten voters would have voted differently had they known Australia was headed towards a hung parliament, according to a new poll conducted for the public affairs company Ogilvy Illumination.

According to The Age, the nationwide poll of 1000 voters was conducted from Friday to Sunday, and found that 13 per cent of voters would change their vote if they had another chance to caste their votes.

It also found those aged between 18 and 24 were most inclined to change their vote, 18 per cent of them said they would choose differently if given another chance.

Voters in New South Wales and Queensland, the states, which recorded the biggest swings against the Labor government, were also more inclined than those in other states to vote differently the second time around, the paper reports.

However, the poll did not indicate which party would benefit in case there is another election.

Labor suffered the most from changed voter behaviour on August 21 with a large swag of votes going directly to the Greens. It suffered a 5 percentage point swing against it on the primary vote, of which 3.6 per cent went to the Greens and 0.6 per cent went to the Liberals. (ANI)
