Poll: Will you vote for a party or Independent candidate in the next general election?

It’s looking likely that Independents will play a considerable role in the next Government.

THE LATEST POLITICAL opinion poll has fuelled further speculation on the role Independents will play in the next general election.

Today’s Irish Times/MRBI poll found just 16% of people would vote for Fine Gael if an election were held to tomorrow, their lowest rating since 2003.

A striking 32% of people said they would vote for an Independent candidate or a small party.

There are already murmurings of an alliance of Independents.

We want to know what your plans are: Will you vote for a party or Independent candidate in the next general election?


Poll Results:

Independent candidate (4303)
Party candidate (3665)
I don't know (1106)
I won't vote (338)
