Shocked young voters could save Rudd

Voting among younger Australians is far more fluid than other segments. If Labor’s slight polling comeback is to become a scraping-over-the-line win, something will have to sway this vote.

First Tony Abbott called this election a "referendum on the carbon tax". Then, when Kevin Rudd returned, Michael Gawenda quite rightly called it a referendum on Rudd (Roll up for the great Rudd referendum, August 14).

Kim Carr got the idea and called it a referendum on manufacturing. And yesterday Anthony Albanese, not to be upstaged, said it was a referendum on broadband and digital communications.
