Mr Connolly became a celebrated cult figure after he egged the controversial senator in the wake of the Christchurch massacre in March.
He was reacting to Mr Anning’s comments that Muslim immigration was in part to blame for the mass shooting.
Mr Connolly, who received an official caution for the egging, was celebrated for his actions with a mural in a Melbourne laneway.
The ABC’s election guru, Antony Green, says he cannot see a path to victory for Mr Shorten’s party.
