Can Peter van Onselen count?

by Samuel J
I was intrigued to read van Onselen's latest piece on an upcoming rout of Labor in the election. Among other things he states
If these dire predictions eventuated, Labor still wins 37 seats, one more than in 1975.
As if Labor winning 37 seats in 2013 is better than winning 36 seats in 1975.
In 1975 there were 127 seats in the House of Representatives, so Labor won 36 / 127 = 28.3 per cent of the seats.
If Labor wins 37 seats out of the 150 seats in the House of Representatives in 2013, that would be only 24.7 per cent of the seats. Surely a worse result than 1975, Mr van Onselen?
