They’re back? Truth is they’ve never gone away. July 7, 2016Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
That’s the thought that strikes viewing the latest poll from the IT. Looks like the fall of Ind/Others may be a real phenomenon, but here it is FF that picks up when compared to the General Election:
Fine Gael, 24 per cent (down two points); Fianna Fáil, 33 per cent (up nine); Labour, 5 per cent (down two points); Sinn Féin, 16 per cent (up two) and Independents/ Others, 22 per cent (down eight).
Labour is only marginally ahead of the Green Party (4 per cent), with AAA (2 per cent) and Social Democrats (2 per cent) not far behind.
Meanwhile, for those hoping to capitalise on some newfound anti-EU sentiment… well,
Asked about the Brexit decision in the British referendum, a massive majority (81 per cent) thought the British were wrong to vote leave and there was overwhelming support for Ireland remaining in the European Union.
The “wrong” number was highest in Dublin, with 84 per cent of all respondents saying that the UK had made the wrong decision.
Dublin is the most pro-EU region, with 90 per cent of respondents in favour of staying in. However the other regions – rest of Leinster and Munster at 85 per cent, Connacht-Ulster at 86 per cent – are hardly far behind.
Support for remaining in the EU rises from 85 per cent among the youngest voters to 89 per cent among the oldest.
