Australian election: How did Liberals win?

From Morning Report, 8:15 am on 20 May 2019

Australia's Liberal-led coalition looks set to secure a parliamentary majority after an election victory that defied the polls and pundits. Prime Minister Scott Morrisson says "quiet Australians" have won a great victory, and his government will get back to work for everyday Australians. Nearly all of the polls had tipped a Labor win, but the coalition has gained 75 seats so far - just one off a majority. The Labor party is now looking for a new leader after the loss. Bill Shorten resigned after conceding to Mr Morrison on Saturday evening, and talk of his replacement has begun. Antony Green is the ABC's election analyst. He talks to Corin Dann.
