WITH A GENERAL election now potentially just weeks away, there is yet more welcome reading for Fine Gael in a political opinion poll.

And coalition partners Labour have also received a boost, and could be set to reach 10% in the coming weeks after floundering in the single-digits.

The latest Sunday Business Post/Red C poll shows support for Fine Gael rise another point to 32%, with Labour up two to 9%, leaving support for the government standing at a combined 41%.

Sinn Féin have also fared well, with a rise of 1% in their support.

Both Fianna Fáil and independents, along with smaller parties, have suffered a hit of 2%.

However, all changes are within the margin of error.

The changs for the coalition partners are 1% above their results in latest Behaviour and Attidutes poll for the Sunday Times, published last weekend, suggesting that Fine Gael’s 3-point stumble to 28% in a Paddy Power/Red C poll may have been a once off.
