DO WE NEED a new political force in the Dáil?

More than half of respondents to a separate poll this week thought so — and the Sunday Independent is speculating this morning that mortgage debt campaigner David Hall could be part of a new grouping led by Lucinda Creighton, should he be elected in Friday’s Dublin West byelection.

It comes as a separate poll, in The Sunday Times, forecasts a record breakthrough for independents in the upcoming local and European elections.

What’s your take? Do we need a new political party in the Dáil?


Poll Results:

Yes. (3945)
