G20 Summit Trump was Not Surprised by Morrison’s Win?

This comment by Donald Trump jumped out at me.  Everyone in Australia was surprised by the Liberal Coalition’s win.   His win was also a surprise, why?

I have concerns as a friend told me recently that she was working in a nursing home last Federal Election (NSW) and she saw the elderly with Alzheimer’s being given a ballot form with only ONE candidate, Liberal.  I said “did you see that” she said “yes“.  I was shocked.  So I sent an email to the Australian Electoral Commission to inform them and request they investigate. There was no response. This is how concerns rise.

I am concerned at the US elections and the allegation by Michael Moore in his recent film 11/9 which states that Bernie Sanders won 55 Congressional Districts yet Hilary Clinton stood.  I am concerned about corruption in elections.  Also the contentious win of George W. Bush in Miami where his brother Jeb was the Governor, this was a contested electorate and there was discussion of corruption.  Apparently African American felons couldn’t vote.  I do not understand why people in prison or released from prison can’t vote.  It may be that they typically vote democrat.  

This is a extract from the link below.

“US President Donald Trump has praised Scott Morrison for his “tremendous victory” in the May election and declared that he knew the Prime Minister could win.

Heaping praise on Australia as a strong ally, Mr Trump opened talks with Mr Morrison at the G20 summit in Japan by congratulating him on the election result.

“He didn’t surprise me but he surprised a lot of people,” Mr Trump said.

Joking at times with Mr Morrison across a dinner table, Mr Trump revealed that he had told the Prime Minister he would win in a conversation before the election.”

Is it appropriate to allow early voting?  See interview with the Electoral commissioner Tom rogers.  I prefer paper based votes.  I personally am not comfortable with it.  Articles for further information below.
