Polls are putting Labor just ahead, but the coalition is far from being counted out. 

On today’s Briefing, we talk to Sacha Barbour Gatt, host of the new LiSTNR Sydney news podcast THIS ARVO IN SYDNEY. Gatt has shared everything you need to know about tomorrow’s election.

“I have been talking to people, and following the comments on articles, I just get the sense that I think Dominic Perrottet made a big impact when he pulled NSW through Covid,” Gatt said.

She said that NSW residents were impressed by Dominic Perrottet’s decisions during the pandemic and the recovery of post covid, such as lifting mask restrictions and reopening shopping centres. 

“ sPeople liked him for that because people were so over it by the time we got through the 2021 lockdown. They liked someone coming in and going, ‘we are moving forward, and we are not stopping’,” she said.

For the Labor party, Gatt said that Chris Minns wanted to present a “clean outlook” to the people in NSW. 

“They have been really nice to each other as well, like both Dom and Chris are kind of open with the fact that if they were not trying to knock each other off the perch, they would be mates and hang out, which is an interesting tactic.”
