The mood began to change when seats dropped in Western Australia later that night.

And I have congratulated you on your electoral victory tonight. I have always believed in the Australians and their judgment and have always been prepared to accept their verdicts.

“And tonight they have delivered their verdict and I congratulate Anthony Albanese and the Labor Party and wish him and his government all the best.”

Why Scott Morrison REALLY lost the election: Furious Liberal MP who lost to ‘teal’ independent delivers damning verdict on former PM

Scott Morrison was disliked “viscerally” by voters who expelled a score of Liberal MPs in protest against the prime minister, former MP Dave Sharma has claimed.

The former Wentworth-based Liberal member in inner Sydney lost his job to independent Allegra Spender, who has campaigned on climate change.

Sharma delivered a damning verdict on the consequences of Morrison’s popularity with his electorate, with as many as 20 Liberal MPs losing their seats in other areas.

The 46-year-old firmly blamed Morrison, saying he was “definitely a drag” on his vote.

“I had a negative approval rating in seats like mine, and it was a drag on the vote,” he told ABC Radio on Wednesday morning.

‘When you talked to people… it was almost visceral, their reaction (towards Morrison).

‘They would say ‘he’s too religious’, they didn’t like that he brought coal to parliament once.

“They didn’t believe her sincerity on climate change, they didn’t like our handling of Brittany Higgins and Grace Tame, the Brittany Higgins rape allegations and Grace Tame’s comments.”

Meanwhile, so-called ‘teal’ candidates, including Ms. Spender, the daughter of designer Carla Zampatti, cleverly positioned themselves with voters as an alternative, he explained.

“Without a doubt, the (former) prime minister has lost some prestige and credit over the last few years,” Sharma added.

“I think the teal candidates positioned themselves quite cleverly, as having an anti-government protest vote without being a Labor-Green vote.”

Sharma insisted that with Morrison stepping down as party leader on election night, there was no better option to carry the party forward than former defense minister Peter Dutton, who is expected to take over.

“He is our most experienced parliamentarian … his first job and his main job is to hold the government accountable and to be the leader of the opposition,” he said.
