Update: Morrison Is Surprise Winner in Australia

Though most experts believed Prime Minister Scott Morrison would lose Australia’s election, they were proved wrong once the votes were counted. Mr. Morrison and his Coalition government have beaten Bill Shorten’s Labor party.

Experts are still trying to figure out how they got the prediction so wrong. Most of the predictions were based on calling people to ask how they were going to vote.

Mr. Morrison was pleased, if not surprised. “I have always believed in miracles,” he said.
