THE LATEST POLITICAL opinion poll shows there’s nothing separating Fianna Fáil from Fine Gael in terms of public support.

The Irish Times/Ipsos MRBI survey, carried out on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week, puts the two civil war parties on 25 per cent each.

It’s a five point decline for Enda Kenny’s party since the paper’s last poll in December of last year.

For Micheál Martin and co — its three point gain shows the party has been benefiting from the Government’s handling of the ongoing GardaGate controversy.

Labour is also down in this latest poll — support for the junior coalition party is at 8 per cent, compared to 9 per cent four months ago.

At 21 per cent, there’s no change for Sinn Féin. Independents and others are up three points to 21.

1,000 people were questioned for the survey, with face-to-face interviews taking place at 100 locations in all constituencies.
