Poll: Would you welcome a general election in the next two months?

A return to the polls is looking increasingly likely with neither Fine Gael nor Fianna Fáil apparently willing to cede ground over the Frances Fitzgerald email controversy.

IT’S BEGINNING TO look a lot like election time in Ireland.

With Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael playing an ever-escalating game of brinksmanship over the email controversy involving Tánaiste Frances Fitzgerald and the Maurice McCabe saga, it seems that unless someone blinks we could be heading to the hustings as early as late December.

It won’t be two years since the last election until February 2018. But is it time to collapse the fragile government in place, the continued survival of which is secured by an increasingly shaky looking confidence and supply agreement between the two largest parties?

Or would you rather all this election malarkey went away until Christmas has been and gone?

We’re asking: Would you welcome an election in the next two months?
