PRIME Minister Kevin Rudd's young supporters refuse to lose hope despite the numbers on the screen at his post-election event.

Chris Goder, 26, spent the day at Mackenzie Primary School in Brisbane handing out how-to-vote cards for the man he wants to continue to lead our country.

"There's always those people that are a bit rude but there were a few people that would take me aside and say 'I hope Labor wins'," he said.

"I believe in Kevin. I believe in marriage equality, NBN, worker's rights and I don't want to this country pushed back into the 1950s.

"I'm not enjoying these numbers but there's always hope."

Together with Jamie Renfrey and Crispin Maguire, also fans of Mr Rudd, they have all been Tweeting and Facebooking all day to bolster Mr Rudd's case.
