Poll data says Hinkler’s right out there

HINKLER has been named in the top three of Australia's most right-wing seats ahead of the federal election.

The results were determined by an analysis of Vote Compass's data, which created a graph using an aggregate measure from answers to policy propositions provided by those living in the electorates.

The 11 seats found to be the most right-leaning in the nation were in Queensland.

While the electorate of Wide Bay was also found to lean to the right, according to the graph, it did not feature in the top 25, coming in at number 26.

Vote Compass was launched by the ABC after Kevin Rudd called the election for September 7.

It received more than 1 million responses as people used the tool to compare their views to the policies of the various political parties.

The data complied by Vote Compass compared the various electorates and placed them on a scale from the most left-leaning to the most right-leaning.

Grayndler in New South Wales was found to be the most left-leaning electorate.
