Defence Minister Peter Dutton says there may be “a lot that the silent majority” of people that help Liberal “need to continue to do … need to speak up”.
Mr Dutton was requested if he believed the conservatives may have finished extra to “counteract” the left at Paul Murray’s Live Pub Test in Brisbane this night.
“The trouble is for our support base … they’re out working, and of a nighttime, they’re doing the books and putting kids to bed and dealing with the realities of life,” he stated.
“They’re not involved in the day-to-day political exchange that you might see on Twitter or Facebook.
“They just don’t have the time to be online warriors the way that the left does.”
