Poll: Would you vote for Irexit?

Nigel Farage believes there’s a ‘gap’ in Ireland’s political market which could be filled by an anti-EU political force.

YESTERDAY, FORMER UKIP leader Nigel Farage swept into Dublin as the main event on a conference on Irexit – the possibility of Ireland following Britain’s lead and leaving the EU.

Farage said there is a ‘gap in the political market’ in this country for a similar wave of anti-EU sentiment, adding that he does not believe Ireland is at heart a pro-EU country.

But does he have a point? Before the UK Brexit referendum little credence was given to the thought that Britain might actually vote Leave – could a similar groundswell of hidden anti-Brussels opinion also seal an Irish exit?

We’re asking: Would you vote for Irexit?

Poll Results:

No (16384)
Yes (5485)
I'm not sure (1024)
