# Seanad referendum
Majority favour Seanad abolition, but large number still undecided
64 per cent are in favour of doing away with the upper house, once ‘undecideds’ are excluded.

THE LATEST OPINION poll on the abolition of the Seanad shows that 64 per cent would be in favour of doing away with the upper house, with 36 per cent against — once ‘undecideds’ are excluded.

However, if ‘don’t knows’ are counted, the figures break down as: 37 per cent in favour of abolition, 20 per cent for retention, and 32 per cent still to make up their minds.

The Sunday Independent/Millward Brown survey was carried out between the 13th and 25th of September among a sample of just under a thousand voters.

One in ten people said they would not vote in the referendum on 4 October.
