The 2019 Australian Federal Election: Results from the Australian Election Study

6PM, Thursday March 26
Zoom online 


The re-election of the Liberal-National Coalition government in the 2019 election confounded most observers. What led to the surprise election result? The newly released 2019 Australian Election Study (AES) provides an unparalleled source of evidence on what shaped voters’ choices in the election. The study has fielded post-election surveys of voter attitudes and behaviour for over thirty years, since 1987, placing the 2019 election in long-term comparison. Drawing upon the AES surveys, this talk will provide insight into what shaped the federal election result, including the role of policy issues, leadership, voter polarisation and the rise of minor parties. The talk will also highlight record levels of distrust in the political system and what’s contributing to these trends.

Join us on March 26 as AES researcher Dr Sarah Cameron presents insights from the 2019 Australian Election Study.

The AES reports and data are available from: www.australianelectionstudy.org
