More bad news for Labour in the latest opinion poll

Is a Fine Gael Fianna Fáil coalition on the horizon?

THE LATEST POLL ahead of Friday’s general election doesn’t make great reading for the coalition.

Results of the Red C/Paddy Power poll were revealed on Today with Seán O’Rourke this morning.


When undecided voters (7%) are excluded, Fine Gael has support of 30% (no change); Labour is on 7% (-1); Fianna Fáil 20% (+2%); Sinn Féin 15% (-1); independents and others 28% (no change).

When the latter is broken down, independent candidates are on 14%, the Independent Alliance is on 2%, the Anti-Austerity Alliance/People Before Profit 3%, the Social Democrats 4%, the Green Party 3% and Renua Ireland 2%.

On foot of the results, Paddy Power has released odds for potential future coalitions, with a Fine Gael Fianna Fáil combination the most likely.

In terms of party leaders, Fianna Fáil’s Micheál Martin is the most popular – on 54% (up from 33%).

Taoiseach and Fine Gael leader Enda Kenny has also seen an increase in support – up from 41% to 47%.
