# Opinion Polls
Good news for Labour, they're more popular than they were two months ago
They’re still not very popular though.

LABOUR HAVE SEEN their support rise two points in the latest opinion poll.

The Millward Brown poll for the Sunday Independent set to be released tomorrow will show that the junior coalition party are supported by 8% of the country.

While that is up on some polls had Labour at a year ago, it is still less than half the vote the party achieved in the 2011 general election.

The Labour and Green Party both climb by 2 percentage points, with Sinn Féin falling by the same amount to 24%.

That leaves Fine Gael as the most popular party in the country – unchanged on 25%, but still 9% down on their share of the popular vote in 2011.

Fianna Fáil’s support remains unchanged on 19%, the Socialist Party and Renua are both on 2% and independents account for 17% of support.
