Good news for Enda: Fine Gael support is up AGAIN

The Millward Brown poll suggests that satisfaction with the government is at its highest level in three years.


SUPPORT FOR FINE GAEL has increased by five points in the latest opinion poll.

The Millward Brown/Sunday Independent poll shows the biggest government party is now backed by 29% of voters.

There’s no such luck for Labour, its coalition party, whose support remains static at 7%.

However, the poll suggests that dissatisfaction with the government is at its lowest level in three years, falling seven points to 60%, while satisfaction with the coalition is up seven points to 32%.

Fianna Fáil is up one point to 24%, making it the second most popular party in the country, while Sinn Féin support is unchanged at 21%.

The rise in support for Fine Gael comes at the expense of independents, whose support has fallen by five points to 19%.

The poll was carried out between 28 October and 6 November.
