New Sunday Times/B&A poll – minor changes October 15, 2016Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
And you know, given that it sits largely within recent bands of polling it is essentially uninteresting. Sure there’s a bit of movement. FF and FG up but these are more or less within the MOE. And likewise others:
Fianna Fáil are up two points on 30%, while Fine Gael support climbed three points to 26%.
Sinn Féin are down one point to 17% and there is a two-point drop for Labour which now stands at 5%.
A one-point drop for the unaligned Independents leaves them on 11% and the Independent Alliance is unchanged on 4%.
The AAA-PBP drop two points to stand at 2%. The Greens are also on 2%.
Support for the Social Democrats, who have two TDs, is measured at below 1% in this poll.
The Workers Party are on 3% and Renua are on 1%.
If I were FG and FF I’d actually be quite concerned about this, because these rather minor movements suggest no great potential for a breakthrough or breakout for those parties. Or, I suppose, anyone. Yet again another poll that won’t have anyone running to call or force an election.
