Keneally polling efforts to no avail
WITH just two weeks until polling day, one thing has become clear about the NSW election – Kristina Keneally is far and away the better campaigner.
The pity for her is that it won’t make a difference to the outcome.
The premier has criss-crossed marginal electorates during the past week as her Fairness for Families bus visited various locations.
Meanwhile, Opposition Leader Barry O’Farrell has largely kept his campaign to smaller policy announcements in Sydney – apart from a $ 350 million pledge to widen the M5 motorway.
Despite a minor hiccup at the start of her six-day tour – her Laborbranded bus broke down before the journey even started – Ms Keneally has made every stop a winner.
The premier relentlessly spruiked promises covering everything from health, domestic violence and emergency services to horse racing.
She was received like a celebrity – one 15 year-old boy cheekily scored a hug from the premier – and effortlessly mingled with workers.
The problem for Ms Keneally is that the polls insist she and Labor won’t be in government after the March 26 poll.
