NEW POLLING DATA has shown a jump in support for the two government parties.

The new poll, which has been carried out by RED C and will appear in tomorrow’s Sunday Business Post, shows Fine Gael hitting 28%, up three points.

Labour has seen its support climb up two points to 10%.

The poll is the first one carried out since last week’s same-sex marriage referendum passed with a Yes vote.

Despite high profile participation in the same-sex marriage Yes campaign, Sinn Féin has seen a slight decline in their support, down a point to 21%.

After a turbulent week, Fianna Fáil remain the country’s third most supported party.

After the resignation of Senator Averil Power from the party and the election of TD Bobby Aylward in the Carlow-Kilkenny by-election, the party’s support remains unchanged on 19%.

The Green Party has seen their support rise slightly to 3% with Lucinda Creighton’s Renua on 1%.

The worst hit in this most recent poll have been independents around the country, who have seen their support fall by six points from 24% to 18%.
