Staying up with my housemate waiting for them to just call a win for Labor, but now it's looking a bit scary for the ALP. Anyone else watching?

Currently tracking.

Doesn't look great for Labor. Even if they scrounge a victory, looks like preferences might be what carries then.

Not watching but keeping an eye on the results. Looked to be extremely close but there seems to be a wider gap now (at least for the TPP numbers).

Tbf, that's nothing new - it's definitely pretty normal for them to have to rely on preferences. Particularly with the Greens taking the more left voters

I'm more interested in this debate - may be bias speaking, but damn this Liberal MP is starting to piss me off. I feel that the Labor MP is trying to keep things civil, but damn is the other one taking any opportunity she can to make fun of Anthony Albanese

Yeah I agree on both points. I only mentioned the preferences bit because Mike Kelly had won the last few Eden-Monaro elections without them.
