The Great Debate: Voters left undecided after combative leaders debate

6PR’s National Political Editor Michael Pachi says that the Australian public have been left undecided who to vote for after Prime Minister Scott Morrison and opposition leader Anthony Albanese went head to head in the second leader’s debate.

Nine News’ political editor Chris Uhlmann, 60 Minutes reporter Sarah Abo, 2GB afternoon host Deborah Knight and chief political correspondent for The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age David Crowe weighed in on the debate.

Speaking to Gareth Parker on 6PR Breakfast, Michael Pachi said that there was a lot of shouting between both leaders during the election event on Sunday night. 

After 30,000 people cast their votes, it ended with 50-50 for both leaders.

“No one seems to be able to galvanise between either leader or either party and really only Labor pulls ahead once preferences are taken into account,” he explained.

“I think that what last night’s debate showed, as probably this campaign has shown, that neither side has really any plans for some major reforms to get wages growth going maybe improve our economic prospects,

“In the end, I don’t know that really that much was achieved.”
