Irish Independent\Milward Brown Poll 16th February

Election Poster

Another week and another poll. Tomorrow sees a poll in the Irish Independent my Milward Brown. It has topline figures as follows:

  • Fine Gael 38 (+8)
  • Fianna Fail 12 (-4)
  • Labour 23 (-1)
  • Sinn Fein 10 (-3)
  • Greens 1
  • Others 16 (-1)

This further cements the lead taken by Fine Gael in the polls. It is also further bad news for Fianna Fail who are really beginning to hit rock bottom. Well they hope they are! The greens have really become an irrelevance in this election as with 1% they would be lucky if they were in the toss up for any seat.

Using these polling figures Adrian Kavanagh has calculated the seats as follows:

  • Fianna Fail 13,
  • Fine Gael 78,
  • Labour 42,
  • Green Party 0,
  • Sinn Fein 13,
  • Others 20

Around 10 left leaning independents and 10 right leaning independents would be elected. If things keep building behind Fine Gael it could definately be looking at one party government.

The poll of polls stands at:

  • Fianna Fail 15.5
  • Fine Gael 35
  • Labour 22
  • Greens 2
  • Sinn Fein 12
  • Other 14

Still a lot to play for in the last week..

In other poll news I am told a Cork South Central poll will be in the Examiner tomorrow. And also there was a Evening Herald for Dublin this evening which had the following figures:

  • Labour 31,
  • Fine Gael 29,
  • Ind 16
  • Fianna Fail 10
  • Sinn Fein 11,
  • Green 3

Its going to be a long few days of polls I think!
