From Tim Blair

Liberal Party strategist Mark Textor believes “the loss of disgruntled conservatives will be outweighed by the appeal of a more moderate party to swinging voters”:

“The qualitative evidence is they don’t matter,” Mr Textor said. “The sum of a more centrist approach outweighs any alleged marginal loss of so-called base voters.”
Looking at the many very unhappy comments by disaffected ex-Liberals on Tim Blair's site, you'd have to wonder if Mark Textor might not have got his figures slightly wrong. The vast majority of voters who wanted Turnbull to be Liberal leader will always vote Labor or Greens.
