Labour support falling as latest polls see Fianna Fáil on top
Fianna Fáil remain the most popular party in the state.

ANY HOPES THAT Labour will have experienced a bounce from the election as leader of Brendan Howlin have been dealt a blow by the latest opinion polls.

The Sunday Times/Behaviour and Attitudes poll published today shows the former junior coalition partner at just 3% support, down two points.

That puts the party level on support with the AAA/PBP. The Green Party sit on 2% support.

Fianna Fáil remain the most popular party in the state, with 30% of people still intending to vote for them. Fine Gael have closed the gap on their rivals, siting at 28% support, up two points.

Sinn Féin are also unchanged on 17%, while the Independent Alliance is up one point to 5%.

The poll comes at a time when the entire industry is under scrutiny, with polling firms having missed the mark on both Brexit and the US election.
