Punters are backing another federal election being called next year as the chaos from last weekend’s poll continues to unfold with no clear outcome as yet.
Sportingbet Australia has the next federal election in 2011 as favourite at odds of $2.25.
Those fancying another election this year can get set at the juicy odds of $5.00.
With Labor and the coalition starting the process to do a deal with the independents, an election in 2013 is the second-favoured option at $2.35, while an election in 2012 would pay $4.00.
‘At $2.25, punters are picking next year as the time when the wheels will either fall off or the government could see enough of a break in the polls to call an election and hopefully gain government in their own right,’ Sportingbet Australia CEO Michael Sullivan said.
Seems most think we will be back at the polls in 2011, personally I would like to go back to the polls as soon as possible, I really don’t like the idea of the Independents holding the country to ransom.
