While the swing federally against Kevin Rudd's Labor party was recorded at just 3.5%, in Tasmania it was a much different story.
The most stark evidence of this anti-Labor voter sentiment was in the historically Labor stronghold of Lyons, held for the past 20 years by Dick Adams, which will now be a Liberal seat following a swing of 12.7 per cent against the traditionally popular incumbent.
In Bass, held by Geoff Lyons, the swing against Labor was less pronounced, yet still at a historically high 9.1 per cent.
But that still compared favourably for the Labor Party, which recorded a groundswell of 11.1 per cent against it in Denison and 11.4 per cent in Braddon.
Only in Franklin did Labor register below the national average at just 3 per cent, with incumbent Julie Collins expected to be the lone Tasmanian Labor survivor in the House of Representatives.
The scorecard read no better for the Greens, which copped a hammering in Tasmania.
In Bass, the Greens' vote fell 7.7 per cent, 8.4 per cent in Lyons, 7 per cent in Braddon, 11.1 per cent in Denison and 8.7 per cent in Franklin.
