Pitching to the punters- epic fail
National- let me explain how this works, as you keep making an arse of it.
The party faithful- they just need to see you stick to policy- whatever that may be. You have to really piss them off to make them take their votes elsewhere.
The enemy (greens and the labor party faithful- they will NEVER vote for you. Ever. Not even once. So it MUST follow that you give them NOTHING!
The swinging/undecided/hope they get their arses away from in front of the tv and vote for you voters:
THIS is where the pork and the promises go because THEY put you in or out. The faithful won't put you in and the enemy won't get you out. A mob of fickle cretins do this.
So suck up to them. Try to appeal using policies that your faithful like. Lower taxation, big on Law & Order are always good.
It is WRONG, WRONG, WRONG!
Give the labor toadies NOTHING. They are not swinging voters.
