Yesterday’s Sunday Business Post had a Red C poll on the treaty referendum and on party support, so it made for interesting reading on the way home from Dublin (hence why this post is late). On the treaty it has shown some slight movement and it is the same story with party support.
The headline figures on the treaty are:
- Yes 47% (-2)
- No 35% (+2)
- Don’t Know 18% (nc)
When the Don’t Know’s are excluded the figures are:
- Yes 58% (-2)
- No 42% (+2)
With the changes all within the margin of error, it is still all to play for. And with the campaign getting officially underway today expect a lot more polls!
In terms of party support the figures are as follows:
- Fine Gael 32% (-2)
- Labour 14% (-1)
- Fianna Fail 17% (+1)
- Sinn Fein 19% (+1)
- Others 18% (+1)
All the changes again are within the margin of error. So no major changes. Interesting to note that Government Parties support is down, while opposition is up. But with no major changes its hard to make any long term predictions on it.
