The headline figures for the Irish Times TNS/MRBI poll are circulating on twitter. The figures are:
- Fine Gael: 36% (-2)
- Labour: 23% (+3)
- Fianna Fáil 20% (-1)
This poll sees yet another fall in the support for Fianna Fáil and a re-adjustment in the support for Fine Gael and Labour. I think the current figures are slightly more accurate as Labour were being under estimated by the polls in my opinion.
If this was to happen on polling day, that Fianna Fail actually come thrid in the national vote in the Locals or Europeans, it will be catostrophic for the Party. Fianna Fáil seem to have hit rock bottom. 20% will be their core vote and I don’t see them getting much more then that.
More when I get more figures, I am especially interested in seeing how the Greens are doing.
