THREE QUARTERS OF people in Ireland are dissatisfied with the performance of the government according to a new opinion poll.

The Millward Brown poll for the Sunday Independent has found that just a fifth of voters are satisfied with how the government is performing with an overwhelming number dissatisfied with its performance after two years.

Millward Brown polled 985 voters over a ten day period up to last Thursday with support for Fine Gael dropping to 25 per cent and Labour’s support dipping below 10 per cent to 9 per cent.

This is when undecideds – of which there are 32 per cent – are excluded.

Fianna Fáíl has topped the poll with 29 per cent, up six points from the last poll in the same newspaper a fortnight ago.

Support for Sinn Féin has dropped to 20 per cent while independents and others are on 16 per cent.
