Post elections poll June 7, 2014Posted by WorldbyStorm in Irish Politics.
The party support levels sees Fine Gael on 20pc, down from the 36pc received in the last general election; and the Labour Party on 5pc, down from 19pc in the 2011 vote. Fianna Fail is on 20pc, up from the 17pc it achieved in the 2011 General Election meltdown.
Sinn Fein is up to 26pc from the 10pc the party achieved in the last general election, and Independents, on 27pc, have risen from the 15pc support levels in 2011.
The figure for the Independents includes the People Before Profit Alliance on 1pc and the Socialist Party on 1pc.
Caveats abound. Given the popularity of SF at the election (and let’s see how the events on Councils impact on that – if at all) there’s some likelihood of people recording increased support in a bandwagon effect. Paddy notes that we don’t know the figure for ‘Don’t Knows’. And there’s going to be no election tomorrow.
Still, and all, SF will be pleased. Inds should likewise be delighted. SF and PBP will no doubt be feeling good , not least because their vote tends to be localised to specific constituencies. And FF/FG and the LP? You can guess.
