A NEW POLL today suggests that 46 per cent of Irish people want a new political party.

The Sunday Independent/Millward Brown poll shows that 33 per cent are against the idea and the number of respondents that didn’t know has risen from 9 per cent in December 2012 to 15 per cent.

Writing in the paper, former Tánaiste Michael McDowell says that people “just want a party of substance”.

Is the market saturated? Is there room in the political landscape?

So, we’re asking: Does Ireland need a new political party?

Poll Results:

No (2846)
Yes (2523)
I don't know (796)
