Irish Times Poll -FF The Biggest Party February 8, 2013Posted by irishelectionliterature in Uncategorized.
Tomorrows Irish Times carries an Ipsos MRBI poll.
The results (the last poll was in October)….
Fine Gael, 25 per cent (down six points);
Labour, 10 per cent (down two points);
Fianna Fáil, 26 per cent (up five points);
Sinn Féin, 18 per cent (down two points);
Green Party, 1 per cent (down one point); and Independents/Others, 20 per cent (up six points).
The poll was taken on Monday and Tuesday of this week before the landmark deal on the promissory notes.
So it tells us nothing about the public reaction to the deal.
Staggering all the same to think of Fianna Fail being the most popular party again after all their destruction in government.
Labour drop again and Fine Gael drop six points from the last poll in October.
When a poll does come out taken after the deal it will be interesting to see a few things. Will FG and Labour gain much, which will gain more and of course who will they gain from.
Presumably it will push Fianna Fail back down again in the polls. I think its a fortnight before another Red C Business Post poll but I suspect somewhere else may publish a poll in the meantime.
