Election 2022: Pauline Hanson on track to lose Senate seat to Greens

Pauline Hanson is at risk of losing her senate spot, with Queensland voters overwhelmingly turning towards the Greens and away from her this election.

The One Nation founder is fighting to hold on to her spot, with tally results as of Sunday morning putting her behind Queensland Greens candidate Penny Allman-Payne.

Senator Hanson, who spent election day in isolation after testing positive to Covid-19 last weekend, was well short of a quota on Saturday night.

One Nation had polled just 7.8 per cent of the Senate vote as of Sunday morning, significantly trailing the Greens’ 14 per cent.

By comparison, the Legalise Cannibals Australian party had 6.7 per cent of the vote.

According to the Australian Electoral Commission, for Senator Hanson to retain her seat she would nee 154,761 votes to gain her seat.

As of Sunday morning, she had just 84,664 and had suffered a 2.45 per cent swing against her.

On Saturday, Senator Hanson had urged Queenslanders to vote for One Nation and retweeted messages from supporters.

“This is the woman that can Make Australia Great Again,” one of the retweeted posts said, making reference to former US President Donald Trump.

“Watch the attitude of major party career politicians change tomorrow when votes don’t matter again for three more years. Watch how Pauline Hanson is exactly the same woman tomorrow as she has always been. There’s the difference,” said another.

Another retweet said: “Pauline Hanson is always a winner in my eyes. She’s done more for this country in two years than most politicians do in a lifetime”.

In the House of Representatives, One Nation currently is polling five per cent of the primary vote – a two per cent swing in its favour.

Elsewhere in Queensland, Liberal Amanda Stoker has been jibbed of her seat with Labor’s Anthony Chisholm likely to pick up the incoming government’s second upper-house seat.

Clive Palmer, who was running for a Senate spot for his United Australia Party and had poured millions into his campaign, had received just 0.32 of his required quota.
