SUPPORT FOR THE two main opposition parties, Fianna Fáil and Sinn Féin, has fallen according to the latest Red C Poll to be published in the Sunday Business Post tomorrow.

The poll shows support for Labour up by one percentage point to 13 per cent with Fine Gael unchanged on 28 per cent, making it the most popular party in the country as it was in the last Red C Poll for the newspaper that was carried out last month.

Other recent polls by Millward Brown and Ipsos MRBI for the Sunday Independent and Irish Times respectively have put Fianna Fáil as the country’s most popular party.

However this Red C poll shows support for the main opposition party has fallen to 24 per cent (down two percentage points) with Sinn Féin on 14 per cent (down two).

Support for independent candidates and other parties is now at 21 per cent, up three.

The poll was taken among over 1,000 voters nationwide last Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
