Yep, the Greens have Michael Organ (electorate of Cunningham) in the HoR. I'd expect him to retain that seat since the local opposition is weak and most of the residents are pissant uni students and former-hippies-turned-uni-lecturers. No wonder the Coalition doesn't even bother to put up a candidate there; complete waste of dosh. As for gaining seats, I'm not sure how many the Greens will secure (if any). There's definately enough dissatisfaction with the ALP amongst left-wingers. Whether they would actually vote for the Greens and "risk" another Howard Government is another thing entirely. If you don't like Howard, a vote for the Greens is pretty much a wasted vote As for the Democrats, well, they're soon to join One Nation in the Hall of Wannabes but Never Willbes. Their leader (who is it this week?) has pretty much secured the party's non-future. Only a couple of them will make it past the election. Wouldn't be surprised if Stott Despoja goes independant soon.
