FIANNA FÁIL REMAINS the best-supported political party in the state, with support of 26 per cent, according to the latest Irish Times/Ipsos MRBI poll published this evening.

Fine Gael and Labour both dropped points since the last poll, at 24 per cent (-1 point) and 9 per cent (-1 point) respectively. Overall support for the government has grown, however, with its satisfaction rating rising three points.

Support for independents has fallen to 18 per cent (-2 points) and rose to 2 per cent for the Green Party (+1 point), while Sinn Féin’s support increased to 21 per cent (+3 points).

When a representative sample of 1,000 voters over the age of 18 was aksed who they would vote for if an election was held tomorrow, 26 per cent said Fianna Fáil.
