THERE’S FURTHER GOOD news for Fine Gael in the newspapers this morning.

A new poll shows Enda Kenny’s party is on course to be the biggest party (by some distance) after the next general election.

Here’s how the figures break down, in this morning’s Irish Times/Ipsos MRBI survey:

  • Fine Gael – 30% (up two)
  • Labour – 7% (down one)
  • Fianna Fáil – 19% (down one)
  • Sinn Féin – 21% (up two)
  • Independents/Others – 23% (down two)

The last comparable poll for the paper was in September.

This one was carried out on Monday and Tuesday of this week, among a sample of 1,200 voters.

There was a margin of error of 2.8%.

At the weekend, a Red C poll for the Sunday Business Post put the party on 31% – their highest level of support in that set of polls since 2012.
