Poll: Should the Taoiseach have taken part in a TV debate?
The Fine Gael leader is being criticised from within his own party for not debating Micheál Martin. Do you think a TV appearance last week would have made any difference?

ENDA KENNY IS coming in for criticism from Government TDs for not taking part in a televised debate during the Seanad referendum campaign.

Fine Gael’s John Deasy has said the decision was a “huge mistake”. However, the party’s chairman is insisting the Taoiseach engaged with people on the issue “up and down the country”.

Today we ask: Notwithstanding how you voted personally, do you think a TV debate appearance from the Taoiseach would have helped the ‘yes’ side?

Poll Results:

No, the result would have been the same had he appeared. (3431)
Yes, he should have backed up his arguments personally. (3165)
I don't know/care. (826)
