The survey shows small drops for Sinn Féin and Labour.

SUPPORT FOR THE two Civil War parties has increased in the latest political opinion poll.

The poll, by Behaviour and Attitudes for the Sunday Times, shows small drops for Sinn Féin and Labour.

Here’s how it breaks down: 

  • Fianna Fáil: 30 (+2)
  • Fine Gael: 26 (+3)
  • Sinn Féin: 17 (-1)
  • Independents (non IA): 11 (-1)
  • Labour: 5 (-2)
  • Independent Alliance: 4 (no change)
  • Workers Party: 3 (+2)
  • AAA-PBP: 2 (-2)
  • Greens: 2 (no change)
  • Renua: 1 (+1)
  • Social Democrats: 0 (-1)

The survey was carried out, for the most part, in advance of the Budget. It was conducted between 2 and 12 October (last Wednesday).

The margin of error is 3.3%. The last B&A-Sunday Times poll was carried out in the middle of last month.
