This is looking very good for Labor, with 18 seats between them and The Greens needing only one more vote for legislation.

Victoria is up next, and this is another state where the majors should lock down 11 seats. But there’s some wiggle room for a second minor party.

Tasmania has fewer minor parties running; but this hasn’t really made prediction much easier…
