A NEW OPINION poll has shown that Fianna Fáil and Labour have both lost support.

The Red C poll for today’s Sunday Business Post puts Labour down two points to 7% while Fianna Fáil drops one point to 18%.

Fine Gael comes out unchanged on 24% – a three point lead over Sinn Féin.

However, it also found that 19% of those who voted Fine Gael are now planning to vote for Sinn Féin – which has gone up one point to 21%.

Independents and others are up two to 30% – the Greens are up one to 3% while Lucinda Creighton’s new party on is on 1%.

The poll also looks at who support Sinn Féin and the Independents. The majority of new voters for both came from past Fine Gael voters.

The Red C poll interviewed over 1,000 adults between last Monday and Wednesday.
