Campaign problems May 16, 2019

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

Was reading this from RTÉ, a report which suggests that FF and FG in Midlands-North-West European constituency have modified their electoral strategy due to ‘in part…an IT poll which suggested Smith and Rabbitte were lying in sixth and seventh place respectively, in a constituency with only four seats’.

Anyhow, now FF’s candidates can campaign across the entirety of the ‘constituency’ bar their own local heartlands. That was a particularly poor showing for FF and something had to be done, but is it enough given FG in the IT poll had two of the top four spots?

And, telling that it notes a problem with the poll:

The poor showing by Fianna Fáil, albeit in a survey with a much higher margin of error than national polls, has also encouraged Fine Gael to re-allocate territory – but this time with the agreement of their two candidates.

I though Maria Walsh would bomb. She seems to be appealing to voters despite being FG. She’s big on “her generation”
