Fine Gael pull further ahead in latest Red C poll
Poll commissioned by the Sunday Business Post puts Fine Gael well ahead of the other parties, with 38 per cent of support.

THE LATEST RED C/SUNDAY Business Post poll shows Fine Gael pulling further ahead of second-placed Labour, with a three point increase in support to 38 per cent.

The poll suggests that support for Labour, Fianna Fáil and Sinn Féin has dipped slightly, while Independents have gained a few points.

Over 1,000 potential voters were questioned between Tuesday and Thursday last week for the poll.

The overall figures for party support break down as follows:

  • Fine Gael (+3) 38%
  • Labour (-2) 20%
  • Fianna Fáil (-2) 15%
  • Sinn Féin (-3) 10%
  • Green Party (+1) 3%
  • Independents (+3) 14%

On a regional level, the poll shows that Labour has its strongest support in the Dublin area. Here, Labour and Fine Gael each have 29 per cent support, according to Red C. However, outside Dublin, Fine Gael is much stronger, registering 41 per cent of support in Connaught/Ulster.

The Sunday Business Post reports that Fianna Fáil and Labour are expected to attempt to focus the public’s attention on Enda Kenny’s leadership in an effort to chip away at the party’s popularity.
