Australia’s political divisions exposed in new poll

http://www.brisbanetimes.com.au/federal-politics/political-opinion/a-plague-on-both-your-houses-fairfax-ipsos-shows-minor-parties-prospering-20161127-gsynjt.html Roughly one third Coalition, one third ALP, one third minor parties & Independents.

Over the years it has only been in certain seats where an Independent candidate has a strong local following or a minor party is the compromise like the Greens in the seat of Melbourne.
