The NSW Liberals have been given a pre-election warning to stray from mistakes of the past if they hope to clinch a win when the state heads to the polls.

RedBridge Group Australia director Kos Samaras said the party’s policies are failing to keep up with increasingly progressive younger voters.

“I think they fail to capture the hearts and minds of an emerging generation which has gradually over the past ten years,” he told 3AW.

“They’re only securing in most states one in five of these voters and to give you some context, (young people) will make up 50 per cent of the voters in Victoria by 2026.”

Mr Samaras went on to point out if the NSW Liberals lose the election on March 25, there will be no mainland state government led by the party.

“Historically, what’s happened is people have always been a little bit more Left-wing when they were younger and become more conservative as they’ve aged – this is not happening with this generation,” he said.

“People now who are well into their 30s are still voting for left wing parties.”

Premier Dominic Perrottet’s Liberal government is the Coalition’s third consecutive term in NSW.

Labor will need to pick up an additional nine seats to win a majority government in its own right.

In Victoria’s November state election, Labor nabbed 56 seats compared to the Liberals 27, a one seat jump from the previous term.

Victorian leader Matthew Guy soon stepped down as party leader after the party nabbed just 29.7 per cent of votes – its lowest result since the 1952 state election.
