Peak poll – SF ahead of FG. March 11, 2017Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
The poll shows small gains for the Government with Fine Gael rising one point to 22% and the Independent Alliance also gaining a point to stand at 6%.
However, the biggest moves are on the opposition benches where Sinn Féin rose four points to 23% and overtakes Fine Gael in second place.
Fianna Fáil remains in top spot on 28% but drops four points compared to last month’s poll.
The non-aligned Independents are unchanged on 8% while the Labour Party is also unchanged on 6%.
The group surveyed in the poll as AAA-PBP, but who are now named Solidarity-PBP, are down one point to stand at 2%.
The Social Democrats and the Workers’ Party are both at 1%. The Green Party is on 2% support.
With an MOE of 3.3% a lot of the movement, such as it is, is well within it. But SF are genuinely moving – and FG won’t be happy. I await with interest Adrian Kavanagh’s latest projection.
