Poll: How would you vote in a general election today?

It’s polling day in Meath East – but if there was a general election nationwide today, who’d be getting your vote?

VOTERS IN MEATH East are going to the polls today to choose a new TD, in what marks the first test at the ballot box for the political parties in over a year.

While the outcome will indicate the current state of play among the main political parties, it won’t do much to change the arithmetic of the Dáil – with Fine Gael and Labour still enjoying a massive majority irrespective of the outcome.

Only about 2 per cent of the country’s voters will get to vote in today’s ballot, though – so we thought we’d use the opportunity to ask how you’d vote if there was a general election today.

So – if the Dáil had been dissolved and a nationwide general election was being held today, who would you be voting for?

Poll Results:

Sinn Féin (2403)
Labour (1107)
Fianna Fáil (1088)
I don't know (1014)
Green Party (989)
Independent (835)
Fine Gael (827)
Another small party (617)
