Some voters now regretting their ballot, says LNP

POST-election work carried out by the LNP found 7 per cent of voters would have changed their ballots had they known how the 2015 election was going to pan out.

Labor won 44 seats to the LNP's 42, thanks largely to a protest vote which saw preferences flow from the minor parties to Labor, on the back of the "just put LNP last" campaign run by unions, minor parties, lobby and interest groups.

More than 20 of the seats held by Labor sit under a 7 per cent margin.

LNP state director Brad Henderson said voters across key seats would have changed their minds had they known their vote would see the LNP lose power.

"In our own post-election work, we found about 7 per cent of voters across these 30 seats that we were tracking said they would change their vote if they knew the current result was going to be the case," he said.
