The inclusion of very Liberal leaning areas into Mulgrave at the last state redistribution prior to the 2014 State Election has made this traditionally safe Labor seat more marginal, but for Daniel Andrews to lose Mulgrave in 2018 would mean that Labor is on the verge of a massive swing against them across the state, which isn't likely to happen.
