Poll: Do you want a general election in 2020?

The Dáil could run until 2021 – but would you rather go to the polls before then?

WELL, 2019 HAS come and gone and we haven’t seen a general election. 

However, it looks likely that we’ll have an election this year. 

In September, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar said that May 2020 “is the right moment” for a general election. 

This timeline would allow Varadkar go the White House for St Patrick’s Day and also ensure he can attend the EU Council meeting in March.

We last had a general election in February 2016. If the Dáil were to run its full term we wouldn’t be due another one until April 2021.

So, today we want to know: Do you want a general election in 2020?

Poll Results:

Yes (9211)
No (2953)
I'm not sure / no opinion (772)
