In the 2016 orange by election there was a swing against the nationals. From what I've seen so far the main two issues mentioned are the greyhound racing bans and the forced council mergers, are there other issues at play, also did the adler shotgun ban have and impact on this even though strictly speaking it's a federal issue.

  • Can you provide a link to the commentary you are referring to? The Adler shotgun and the politics surrounding it are causing a lot of controversy at the moment, any further reference you can provide to your exact query is going to help immensely in formulating an answer – user7754 Nov 23 '16 at 1:22
  • The question has been updated to make it a little clearer, there seems to be two main issue that i've seen and possibly a third just wondering if thats it or there is more to it. – user1605665 Nov 23 '16 at 11:53
