If private health insurance is the only major budget element that the Coalition helps reject in the Senate then the chances of a double dissolution will diminish. Calling an early election is always a risk and a worsening of unemployment does not necessarily mean that a government suffers. Just recall the Hawke and Keating wins in the midst of recessionary times. In tough times people are wary of taking a risk about the unknown team. They wait for the good times to punish - just ask John Howard.
