The actual moral of the story is this:
Having a preference deal with a like-minded smaller party that is led by a mining Billionaire that intends on also spending $80 million dollars for commercials trashing your opponent daily, effectively resulting in a blanket anti-Shorten advertising campaign just might help save your ass from being turfed.
Seriously how could anyone think Shorten would win when for a welcome change the Right-wing parties were dominating the commercials left, right and centre.
Clive Palmer's UAP saved the Liberals and so did One Nation too.

No, The polls were actually correct for most states. But surprise Queensland success for Palmer's United Australia Party and Hanson's One Nation has saved the Liberal party from getting turfed due to Preference Voting and a surprise big final day swing.
In every other state the polling was quite accurate. Most people in Australia outside QLD would be surprised at the results.
So far it looks like polls were a little off:
Australia uses a Preference Voting system so trust me, you add most of The Greens and every other left wing party to Labor's total, and you add the UAP + One Nation + other right-wing parties to Liberal Party total.
You'll see the election was actually a fairly close one because the Greens adds roughly 10% to Labor's total.
Samantha Maiden is an idiot. Totally forgetting the Greens add most of the 10.8% to Labor's total. While the coalition only gets a 5%-6% boost.
44.1% to about 47.8%.
Plus the independents or micro parties which are also fairly left leaning. It gets even slightly closer.
